The Database for Annotation, Visualization and Integrated Discovery (DAVID) provides a comprehensive set of functional annotation tools for investigators to understand the biological meaning behind large lists of genes. These tools are powered by the comprehensive DAVID Knowledgebase built upon the DAVID Gene concept which pulls together multiple sources of functional annotations. For any given gene list, DAVID tools are able to:

  check image  Identify enriched biological themes, particularly GO terms
   check image  Discover enriched functional-related gene groups
   check image  Cluster redundant annotation terms
   check image  Visualize genes on BioCarta & KEGG pathway maps
   check image  Display related many-genes-to-many-terms on 2-D view.
   check image  Search for other functionally related genes not in the list
   check image  List interacting proteins
   check image  Explore gene names in batch
   check image  Link gene-disease associations
   check image  Highlight protein functional domains and motifs
   check image  Redirect to related literatures
   check image  Convert gene identifiers from one type to another.
