FunRich: Functional Enrichment analysis tool
FunRich is a stand-alone software tool used mainly for functional enrichment and interaction network analysis of genes and proteins.
Besides, the results of the analysis can be depicted graphically in the form of Venn, Bar, Column, Pie and Doughnut charts.
Currently, FunRich tool is designed to handle variety of gene/protein data sets irrespective of the organism.
Users can not only search against default background database, but can also load customized database against which functional
enrichment analysis can be carried out.

Overall, FunRich tool hosts three different database options against which analysis can be done.
In FunRich, users are provided with three options to manage the backend databases:
a human only database is provided
and the assembly details are clearly provided both in the manuscript and in the FAQs sections of the website;
can automatically download database from UniProt for any organism
the users can build their own databases and perform the enrichment analyses
directly with FunRich. Thus FunRich allows for complete database customization and thereby allows for the tool to be exploited as a
skeleton for enrichment analysis irrespective of the database used.
FunRich database option currently supports the enrichment analysis of the following categories
- Biological process
- Cellular component
- Molecular function
- Protein domains
- Site of expression (normal tissues, cancer tissues, cell types and cell lines)
- Biological pathways
- Transcription factors
- Clinical synopsis phenotypic terms
