Hi hanguangchun,

If you want to remove redundancy between enriched terms in your output you could try the tool GO Trimming outlined in "GO Trimming: Systematically reducing redundancy in large Gene Ontology datasets"

with software provided here (also linked in the article):

I would like to remove redundancy between enriched terms, but GO Trimming it's no longer working, the analysis starts and never ends. It might be because the database is too old ? Do you have a more recent database for Go Trimming ?

Thanks a lot, Regards, WS
