I performed a GSEA analysis using the GO derived gene sets and would like to assign a GO id to the gene set names. Though the information is available set-by-set (, it would be great if there was a way to batch annotate the list.

There must be a tool to do this (biomaRt does not help).

Grateful for any information!

The simplest way may be to download the large XML file from the Broad site and use a small script in your language of choice to extract the GO id from the text description of the gene set.
