#' Get all probes related to a gene
#' 
#' Given a \code{ResultSet} and a gene name returns the results of the 
#' analysis of all the probes of the gene.

#' @name getGeneVals
#' @aliases getGeneVals
#' @export
#' @param object \code{ResultSet}
#' @param gene Character with the name of the gene
#' @param rid Name of the results: "DiffMean" for mean differences, "DiffVar" for
#' variance differences. (Default: DiffMean)
#' @param genecol Character with the column of \code{object} fData with the gene
#' information
#' @param fNames Names of the columns of \code{object} fData that will be added to
