I am new to gene ontology and was wondering the best tool to use to test if a gene set is enriched for certain GO terms in a non-model prokaryote?

Fantastic, thank you!  I just found that DAVID is actually very flexible and allows for input of user generated gene and background lists.  I will look through FINA and JProGo as well.

Not a lot is out there regarding gene set enrichment in Prokaryotes.

An excerpt from Bioinformatics enrichment tools: paths toward the comprehensive functional analysis of large gene lists

Several enrichment tools were specifically designed for these less popular species, such as WEGO for rice (54); easyGO for crops (66); FINA for prokaryotes (58); CLENCH for Arabidopsis (21); JProGo for prokaryotes (48); BayGo for Xylella fastidiosa (52).
