Welcome to GOssTo, the Gene Ontology Semantic Similarity Tool!

GOssTo is a software system for calculating semantic similarities between gene products in the Gene Ontology.
GOssTo implements the Random Walk Contribution, improving the accuracy of similarity measures.
For Yang's et. al description of the method:

-> Improving GO semantic similarity measures by exploring the ontology beneath the terms and modelling uncertainty
   Bioinformatics, vol. 28, iss. 10, pp. 1383-1389, 2012.

If you use GOssTo, please cite it.

-> GOssTo: an extendable stand-alone and web tool for calculating semantic similarities on the Gene Ontology
   To appear in Application Notes in Bioinformatics.
