getSpecies: Specify the Species To Which Subsequent Data Belongs

Description Usage Value See Also


A gaggle broadcast always includes the species (the organism) the data is associated with. For example, the KEGG goose must tell the KEGG web server what organism the accomanying gene names are from. The R Goose has a notion of default species; this command is a convenient way to learn the current value of that default.




Returns the name of the current species.
