GeneSCF serves as command line tool for clustering list of genes based on functional annotation (Geneontology, KEGG, REACTOME and NCG). This tool requires gene list in the form of Entrez Gene IDs or Official gene symbols as a input.
The advantage of using GeneSCF over other gene set enrichment analysis tools is that, GeneSCF performs enrichment analysis in real-time (v1.1 and above) by accessing source databases.

System requirementsGeneSCF only works on Linux system, it has been successfully tested on Ubuntu, Mint and Cent OS. Other distributions of Linux might work as well. If something goes wrong, please test whether these commands are woking fine on your teminal, awk, cat, gzip, wget, rm, mkdir, sort, date, sed, paste, join, grep, curl, echo
