Introduction to g:Profiler

This workshop provides a comprehensive introduction to g:Profiler, a tool designed for functional enrichment analysis, gene ID conversion, and orthology mapping, and requires no prior knowledge. Specifically intended for beginners, the session emphasizes efficient usage of g:Profiler for mapping genes to known functional information sources and identifying statistically significantly enriched terms.

Key topics:

  • Basics of enrichment analysis.
  • Performing gene ID conversion.
  • Understanding orthology mapping with g:Profiler.
  • Navigating and utilizing g:Profiler’s web interface.
  • Introduction to programmatic interactions with g:Profiler.
