I have a gene set of ~1600 gene symbols that I have retrieved from NCBI and would like to analyse for enrichment of immunological function/pathways.
I have tried using both DAVID and Panther, but the difficulty I am having is figuring out which of the gargantuan list of terms that is returned relate to immunological function (some are obvious i.e. explicitly to do with B-cell function, others are terms that I don't even know where to begin with).
Is there any way I can filter such an analysis so that it only looks for enrichment of a certain type (immunological in this case)?
And if so, is this something that can be done in DAVID or Panther? Or would another tool be more appropriate?
Apologies if the answer is something obvious (I am very new to this) - I have spent several days reading and aren't any closer to an answer.
