### #Bioinformatics people, which programs do you use for GO-terms enrichment analysis? All seems well until you stick to one program only. I was running DAVID, PANTHER, GOrilla, and TopGO. Got different results. Read this study, but it did not clarify things: https://t.co/XvSVTPKU7K— Irina Chelysheva, PhD (@chelysheva_i) July 4, 2021

### Popularity and performance of bioinformatics software: the case of gene set analysis | BMC Bioinformatics | Full Text (bmcbioinformatics.biomedcentral.com)

Gene Set Analysis (GSA) is arguably the method of choice for the functional interpretation of omics results. The following paper explores the popularity and the performance of all the GSA methodologies and software published during the 20 years since its inception. "Popularity" is estimated according to each paper's citation counts, while "performance" is based on a comprehensive evaluation of the validation strategies used by papers in the field, as well as the consolidated results from the existing benchmark studies.

### As a group working on #scRNA-seq and #snRNA-seq analysis, we’ve noticed that certain popular and publicly-available datasets, e.g. the PBMC datasets from 10x Genomics, are used repeatedly for tutorials, method development, etc. and often reprocessed. 1/🧵— Rob Patro (@nomad421) May 6, 2022

• A Nextflow workflow (quantaf) for processing single-cell and single-nucleus data with alevin-fry.

• An R package (roe) for allowing easy programmatic fetching of already processed data.

• A python package (pyroe) for allowing easy programmatic fetching of already processed data and also a CLI for preprocessed data fetching.

• A website with descriptions of these tools and daw links to these data.
