{Gene Set Clustering based on Functional annotation}


GeneSCF serves as command line tool for clustering list of genes based on functional annotation (Geneontology, KEGG, REACTOME and NCG). This tool requires gene list in the form of Entrez Gene IDs or Official gene symbols as a input.

The advantage of using GeneSCF over other gene set enrichment analysis tools is that, GeneSCF performs enrichment analysis in real-time (v1.1 and above) by accessing source databases.
