AtlasRDF: Gene Expression Atlas query and gene set enrichment package.

Query the Gene Expression Atlas RDF data at the European Bioinformatics Institute using genes, experimental factors (such as disease, cell type, compound treatments), pathways and proteins. Also contains a function to perform an enrichment of your gene list across Experimental Factor Ontology (EFO) using the Atlas background set.
