Usage

1
makeGene(id, type, biomart, dp = NULL)

Arguments

id

An identifier used to specify of which gene the intron-exon structure should be retrieved

type

The type of identifiers used, examples are ensembl\_gene\_id, hgnc\_symbol,entrezgene. See listAttributes function of the biomaRt package for more info

biomart

Mart object, created by the useMart function of biomaRt
