Description

This function writes out a GFF compliant tab delimited file for intergration with genome browsers.

Usage

1
writeGFF3(cset, genome, chr, file.prefix = "temp.gff", organism = NULL)

Arguments

cset

expression set containing cytogenetic predictions, see reb

genome

chromLocation object containing annotation information

chr

chromosome to examine

file.prefix

character string - name of the output file, defaults to "temp.gff"

organism

if NULL, determination of the host organism will be retrieved from the organism slot of the chromLocation object. Otherwise "h", "r", or "m" can be used to specify human, rat, or mouse chromosome information

Value

writeGFF3 returns an invisible list of character vectors.
