Make GeneAnswers Instance readable

Share:

Description

a function to mapping category IDs and gene IDs to names and symbols.

Usage

1
geneAnswersReadable(x, catTerm = TRUE, geneSymbol = TRUE, strict = FALSE, verbose=TRUE, missing=c('name', 'keep', 'remove'), ...)

Arguments

x

a GeneAnswers instance containing category IDs and geneIDs

catTerm

logic value to determine whether mapping category IDs to names

geneSymbol

logic value to determine whether mapping gene IDs to symbols

strict

logic value to determine whether interrupt conversion if NA is introduced.

verbose

logical, show current stage or not

missing

type of handling NA mapping.

...

other parameters used by getCategoryTerms

Details

Conversion could stop if NA is introduced and strict is set to TRUE. There are three types of parameters for variable 'missing'. 'name' means the NA mapping values are replaced by their names. 'keep' means all of NA values are kept. 'remove' means all of NA values are removed. Occationally, Reactome uses the same name for species-mixed pathways based on in vivo and in vitro experiments, so we highly recommend to set addID as TRUE for Reactome test.

Value

return a GeneAnswers instance with category names and/or gene symbols.
