In order to compare the biological processes of two species groups, it is necessary to find the taxonomy identifier for them. The taxonomic tree can be loaded into the tree pane on the right of the query frame which makes it easy to find the accession numbers for mammals and fungi. A double-click on the tree inserts the respective entity into the query. The full query reads
GO WHERE TAX:4751 RESTRICT TT:biological_process SIM GO WHERE TAX:40674 RESTRICT TT:biological_process
The first part selects all biological process terms from fungi, set 1, which includes all fungal species in the database, and the second part returns the set with all processes from mammalian species, set 2. The table with the results can be separated into three parts.
First, the rows contain the accession number and the name of the GO term in set 1. The second part gives the most similar term from set 2 according to simRel with similarity, accession number and name. The last part contains the information on the most similar term according to Lin. The visualizations of the graph contain also the similarity values. The 2D tree view includes them in parentheses after the name.
This allows to browse the graph without jumping between two windows.
