I apologize if this seems like a silly question, but I haven't had success in finding answers yet. I have transcriptomes that I did differential expression with, and one thing I'd really like to do is do some gene ontology with them. I've seen a labmate do it before and from my perspective, it seemed like simply pasting the list of genes onto a search engine and coming up with the different GO terms.
My problem is that all my data are in locus tags which aren't being recognized by DAVID or Pantherdb and such. My question is, how do I proceed? Do I have to convert my list of genes somehow? Any insight would be appreciated!
locus tags examples: "G4B11_000096 G4B11_000117 G4B11_000118 G4B11_000119 G4B11_000120 G4B11_000135 G4B11_000139"
