Hi, I have a list of GO IDs and would like to know how I can get their associated term?

If you've got a list of GO IDs and want to know their associated terms, use BioMart, available as a web interface, in R or through its Perl API and RESTful services. Which species are you interested in?

Good. And for 'associated terms'. What do you mean by those? GO IDs associated with gene IDs? Or associated GO descriptions? Have a look at this GO FAQ to get to a previous post in BioStars.

I just don't see where there's anything ambiguous here. The Gene Ontology has terms which have IDs. The OP has a list of IDs from GO for which they want to find the corresponding terms. Nowhere is there any mention of genes or p-values or anything else. For once we have a clearly stated question, why do we want to make things confusing ?

If you're going to do a bunch of them in batch, probably downloading the GO ontology release (http://geneontology.org/page/download-ontology) and then extracting out the information you want through a small script would be the best way.

If you have few enough you can do them by hand, I would say just go through AmiGO 2 (http://amigo.geneontology.org/amigo).

Another option if you need to do this a lot is to use the MySQL database. A dump is available on the download page. For this, you only need the term table.

Do you mean you have GO terms, and are they associated with p-values? Then you can do a summarisation or lets say over-representation analysis of GO terms with ReviGo or GO term mapper

I would still ask you to be a bit more descriptive with your question and tell us what you intend to perform and what have you tried till now. It would be easier for others to help you out.

Note: Search Google with GO Term association. A lot of hits will turn with Biostars.

I agree with vchris. It would help if you are more specific.

I mean, of course there are many places where you can find the related term for a Go id, for example the GO website...? So what is the actual problem here?
