How to perform a Gene Set Enrichment Analysis (GSEA) with Blast2GO

This video shows how to perform a Gene Set Enrichment Analysis (GSEA) with Blast2GO. GSEA is a computational method to determine whether an a priori defined set of genes shows a statistically significant difference between biological samples. Blast2GO makes use of the GSEA software package developed by the MIT/BROAD Institute. Its integration in Blast2GO makes it easy to run the analysis and review the results, allowing you to focus on the analysis result interpretation.

This short video shows how to:

  • create the ranked gene list, used parameters and how to run the analysis
  • interpret the different result tables and plots
  • generate charts and graphs to summarize the functional profiles
