MEDIPS.getAnnotation: Funtion to fetch annotations from biomaRt.

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) Examples

View source: R/MEDIPS.annotate.R

Description

The function receives predifined annotations from ensembl biomaRt for subsequent annotation of a result table.

Usage

1
MEDIPS.getAnnotation(host="www.ensembl.org",dataset=c("hsapiens_gene_ensembl","mmusculus_gene_ensembl")[1],annotation=c("TSS","EXON","GENE")[1],tssSz=c(-1000,500),chr=NULL)

Arguments

host

BioMart database host you want to connect to. For current ensembl version, use "www.ensembl.org". For other versions, set to the respective archive host, e.g. "may2012.archive.ensembl.org" for Ensembl 67 Please ensure that the ensembl version is compatible to the used genome version.

dataset

The dataset you want to use. To see the different datasets available within a biomaRt you can e.g. do: mart = useMart('ensembl'), followed by listDatasets(mart).

annotation

Type of annotation you want to retrieve. You can select "EXON" for exonic regions, "GENE" for gene regions including introns and "TSS" for regions at the transcirption start site.

tssSz

Defines the TSS region: start and end position relative to the strand and position of the transcript.

chr

Chromosome names for which the annotations should be filtered.

Value

The MEDIPS.getAnnotation function returns a list of annotation tables where each table consists of

id

the id of the annotation

chr

the chromosome of the annotation

start

the start position (5') of the annotation

end

the end position (3') of the annotation
