The “guilt by association” principle for prediction of annotation terms for a novel gene. It is based on comparison of gene expression profiles between the novel gene and a set of annotated genes, ranking of the annotated genes according to the similarity of the expression profiles relative to the novel gene, and enrichment analysis of annotation terms in the most highly ranked annotated genes. The significantly enriched terms can be used as an estimate of annotation for the novel gene
