GSEA is an algorithm for testing gene set enrichment. It is
distributed as a Java standalone program or an R script; however the R
script is (a) crippled and (b) not straightforward to use (not really
written "the R way").

However, the algorithm itself seems interesting, since it (a) does not
require arbitrary thresholds for selecting the enriched gene set and
(b) uses a permutation approach to assess the significant changes for
GOs, and so directly takes into account the actual variability of the

What alternative presents itself for R?

kind regards,
