symbol2unitID-methods: Conversion between Gene Symbols and UnitIDs

Description Arguments Details Value Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Convert gene symbols to internal UNIT_IDs and vice verse.

Usage

symbol2unitID(object, symbol, unittype = "transcript", as.list = TRUE)

unitID2symbol(object, unitID, unittype = "transcript", as.list = TRUE)

Arguments

object

Object of class "SchemeTreeSet" or "DataTreeSet".

symbol

character vector of gene symbol(s).

unitID

vector of UNIT_IDs.

unittype

character vector, “transcript” or “probeset”.

as.list

if TRUE a list will be returned (default is data.frame).

Details

Functions symbol2unitID and unitID2symbol returns the UNIT_ID(s) for selected gene symbols and vice verse.

For exon arrays the internal UNIT_ID(s) depend on unittype.

By default a list is returned, however for as.list=FALSE a character vector of IDs is returned.

Value

A list or character vector.
