Dear colleagues, I would like to check if my understanding onone aspect of GOstats is correct. The probeset 1370428_x_at is linked to the GO term GO:0002474 When I use hyperGTest (with conditional=F), if this probeset is DE, enrichment of GO:0002474 will be tested. And so will its parent GO term GO:0048002, even this GO term is not explicitly linked to the affy id in the annotation. Is that correct? GOstats will follow the GO tree from bottom-up to conduct tests? On a slightly different matter, the grandparent node of GO:0002474, GO:0019882, is explicitly linked to this affy id in the annotation. Why is this so, but not the parent node GO:0048002?

Although this particular probeset isn't mapped directly to the parent GO term, it _is_ by definition mapped to that term since the child term is a subset of the parent (here subset being defined by either an is_a or a part_of relationship to the parent). Note that this will be true even if conditional = TRUE, unless GO:0002474 is significant _and_ that particular probeset contributed to that significance. Although we shouldn't be talking about probesets here because the GO analysis is done on the gene level. > > On a slightly different matter, the grandparent node of GO:0002474, > GO:0019882, is explicitly linked to this affy id in the annotation. Why > is this so, but not the parent node GO:0048002? Good question, but wrong forum. We just repackage existing annotations, and as far as I can tell everybody says the same thing about this gene. For instance, NCBI: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/entrez?db=gene&cmd=search&term=24737 The same thing is true of Affy and Ensembl.
