I have a list of orthologous gene IDs from the first supplementary file in here.

The gene IDs are of the following type:


I want to do the GO term analysis for these IDs. I tried mapping them to FlyBase IDs from OrthoDB and then using DAVID. But many of the orthologous IDs are not getting mapped to the FlyBase ones so I'm not getting proper results.

Is it possible to get the GO term analysis done directly for the orthologous gene IDs without mapping them to the FlyBase IDs?

  • $\begingroup$ Yes. I got the orthologous gene IDs from the fourth column of the bed file. $\endgroup$ – abcdef Aug 12 '15 at 9:11
  • $\begingroup$ I have a solution for accurate ID conversion but it makes use of a small script (that you'll have to write). The idea is quite simple and the implementation is easy. Would that be fine or you just want an existing reliable ID converter? $\endgroup$ – WYSIWYG Aug 12 '15 at 9:19
  • $\begingroup$ I'm comfortable with writing a script. I had written one initially which took the file from OrthoDB, extracted the lines with DMEL as Organism ad then mapped the IDs in the given file. $\endgroup$ – abcdef Aug 13 '15 at 5:30
