I have a set of gene of interest with ensembl Gene ids and I want to do functional annotation for each and to categorize them based on function. I am interested to do other than doing with blast2GO. I have tried with DAVID tool, but I don't find any functional annotation for my set of genes. Can I try with eggNOG?. Any suggestion for using better tool for functional annotation.

You might find BioMarts ID conversion tool very handy. You can get GO terms and much more.

BioMart is a useful tool for this, as mentioned.

The Ensembl Core Perl API can also be used to retrieve GO terms.

Installation instructions are here:

http://www.ensembl.org/info/docs/api/api_installation.html

Modules are here:

http://www.ensembl.org/info/docs/Doxygen/core-api/index.html

Specifically, you would want the ontologyterm adaptor methods.

If you have more questions about how to get GO terms for Ensembl transcripts, email us at helpdesk@ensembl.org
