Dear Mark, If I understand your problem correctly, neither GSEA nor GSA will accomodate it. The only option I know of is geneSetTest() in the limma package. This generally works well, although it will give you someone over optimistic p-values if there are strong positive correlations between the genes in your gene sets.
