REVIGO Summarizes and Visualizes Long Lists of Gene Ontology Terms

Figure 2

The “Scatterplot & Table” view of REVIGO.

The scatterplot shows the cluster representatives (i.e. terms remaining after the redundancy reduction) in a two dimensional space derived by applying multidimensional scaling to a matrix of the GO terms' semantic similarities. The table view in the lower part of the figure is truncated; cluster representatives are given in black and other cluster members in gray letters. Bubble color indicates the user-provided p-value (legend in upper right-hand corner); size indicates the frequency of the GO term in the underlying GOA database (bubbles of more general terms are larger).
