WEGO (Web Gene Ontology Annotation Plot) is a simple but useful tool for visualizing, comparing and plotting GO (Gene Ontology) annotation results. As the GO vocabulary became more and more popular, WEGO was widely adopted and used in many researches. Therefore we have updated WEGO 2.0 in 2018. Here are some changes we’ve made:
1. The limit of input file numbers was cancelled. Now the users could upload as many files as they want with one operation.
2. We have added the reference data of 9 species for users selection.
3. Besides the traditional WEGO histogram, WEGO 2.0 outputs an additional type of bar graph showing GO terms with significant gene number differences.
