I would like to use the package mgdsa in R to do Multi Dimensional Gene Set Analysis, but it only accepts GO ID and I have gene symbol. How can I get gene ontology ID from gene symbol?

Thank you!

Hi,

If you want to stick with R, you can try to use the function getGO (getGO: Gene Ontology Query) from the package biomartr (biomartr: Genomic Data Retrieval) that will give the GO terms based on gene ids.

Although if you don't want to do it in R, I believe that DAVID or AmiGO2 web resources can be good alternatives.

I hope this answers your question!

António
