synapterTinyData: Loads a small test data for the 'synapter' package

Description Usage Value Author(s) Source Examples


Instead of using data to load the synapterTiny data set, synapterTinyData will load it and initialise it for proper downstream analysis, during which the 04_test_database.fasta file, provided with the package and references inside the object needs, to be accessed. However, as the exact location can not be known in advance, the reference is updated with the file's correct local path.

This data set has been generated with the Synapter constructor. Note that the input data file sizes have been reduced by depleting many rows (peptides and EMRTs) from the original csv files.

In addition, several columns that where not necessary for processing were also removed. As such, the data stored in synapterTiny does not relect the data obtained when following the section 'Preparing the input data' in the section, without however affecting the processing and final results.




A character vector with the data set name, "synapterTiny". Used for its side effect of loading synapterTiny, an instance of class Synapter, in .GlovalEnv.
