An example of the library mapping name of compounds to their respective KEGG codes.
keggLibrary is an example of the keggCodes library used by the function
addKeggCodes, which automates the substitution of compounds names by KEGG codes. keggLibrary is a data frame containing a list of KEGG compounds codes in the first column and their respective names in the second column.
A data frame with 2 columns and n rows, where n is the number of compounds present in the library.
a list of KEGG codes for the compounds described in the second column.
a list of compound names related to the KEGG codes in column one.
For a high-throughput platform, the keggLibrary must contain all the compounds potentially identifiable by the protocol in use. Every time a new compound is added, for example in the GC-MS library, the same compound must be added to the keggLibrary.
