I have been reading the following 2 reviews to get an overview of all pathway analysis tools:
Am I right in thinking that DAVID is an ORA method? I was looking at the DAVID website but it is not extremely clear.
Yes, I believe DAVID implements an ORA method, as defined by Ten Years of Pathway Analysis: Current Approaches and Outstanding Challenges. The best place to check would be the DAVID papers.
I don't think the terminology used by the Ten Years of Pathway Analysis: Current Approaches and Outstanding Challenges paper has stuck, for example, it is common to see GSEA being referred to as an over-representation analysis.
Yes, it certainly seems like a lot of the terminology evolving around pathway analysis is loosely used.
