hyperGTest compute Hypergeomtric p-values for over or under-representation of each GO term in the specified category among the specified gene set.

*geneSample* was used as an example.

> geneSample
 [1] "3987"      "11167"     "8683"      "23576"     "80173"     "857"       "64960"     "3178"      "93099"     "100302736" "3916"      "8663"      "3383"      "445582"
[15] "10564"     "5339"      "6732"      "4678"      "10989"     "55276"     "29127"     "10735"     "51449"     "55720"     "11100"     "2314"      "51204"     "11083"
[29] "5694"      "6605"

After using hyperGTest to test GO terms for over-representation, I get the result which were shown below:

> slotNames(hgOver)
[1] "goDag"         "pvalue.order"  "conditional"   "annotation"    "geneIds"       "testName"      "pvalueCutoff"  "testDirection"
> summary(hgOver)
      GOBPID       Pvalue OddsRatio  ExpCount Count Size                                       Term
1 GO:0044419 0.0002743002  10.32175 0.5988965     5  343 interspecies interaction between organisms

I want to know which subset of the input genes, which does not reported, represented in the significant GO term.

This can be done by using the genome wide annotation data, for human at this example,, for mapping Entrez gene IDs to GO IDs.

Since GO ontology is a directed acyclic graph, all genes that are annotated with a child GO term are also annotated with their parent terms. So, org.Hs.egGO2ALLEGS is using for mapping rather than org.Hs.egGO.

In the example above, we can get the corresponding gene set by:

> geneSample[geneSample %in% get("GO:0044419", org.Hs.egGO2ALLEGS)]
[1] "857"  "3178" "3383" "6732" "5694"

The gene set can further map to other identifiers or annotation data by biomaRt package.
