The Plant GeneSet Enrichment Analysis Toolkit (PlantGSEA) is an online websever for gene set enrichment analysis of plant organisms developed by Zhen Su Lab in China Agricultural Unversity. We developed this to meet the increasing demands of unearthing the biological meaning from large amounts of data.

The PlantGSEA was designed to serve researchers from plant community with a user-friendly interface as well as performance-efficient frame. It has several features when comparing with other similar tools:

1.We collect totally 20,290 gene sets form different resources, such as public database, computational prediction, literature etc. which are all from plant species. These gene sets are divided into 4 categories, including GO gene sets(G1), Gene Family Based gene sets(G2), Curated gene sets(G3), Motif gene sets(G4) and Cluster gene sets (G5) which is new added.

2.The PlantGSEA toolkit cater for agricultural study based on GSEA method which is a statistical computational method to extract biological meaning from a list of differential expression genes at the level of gene sets. Besides online computational prediction, the PlantGSEA further provides tools such as gene set exploration, Gene ID conversion, hierachy analysis, etc.
