FSim: A Novel Functional Similarity Search Algorithm and Tool for Discovering Functionally Related Gene Products

Figure 6

The two exemplary visualization plots provided by FSim package. The heat map in (a) displays whether the genes are annotated to a given group of GO terms. A total of 10 genes and 4 GO terms are displayed in this heat map. The -axis is the Entrez gene ID, and the -axis is the GO term ID. The squares in the map denote whether a gene is annotated with a corresponding GO term, with the color proportional to the LC scores. The word cloud in (b) displays all overrepresented GO terms for a given pathway. The GO terms are listed with different text scales and colors corresponding to their respective enriched weights.
