What is G3C ?
We have developed a software package called G3C (for Get all Co-annotated Co-located Clusters) using the PERL language. This software has been designed to identify all groups of co-located genes, which share a similar GO annotation on a genome scale. Basically, the principle of the software is the following: within a genomic window, it computes a p-value of the existence of a cluster of co-annotated genes for a specific similarity group of GO terms given by the hypergeometric distribution.
How does it work?
You need a functional PERL environment to use the software (the needed modules are mentioned in the online documentation). You will also need a SQL database to store data (pre-processing scripts are in the package).
