The package ABAEnrichment is designed to test for enrichment of user defined candidate genes in the set of expressed genes in different human brain regions. The core function 'aba_enrich' integrates the expression of the candidate gene set (averaged across donors) and the structural information of the brain using an ontology, both provided by the Allen Brain Atlas project. 'aba_enrich' interfaces the ontology enrichment software FUNC to perform the statistical analyses. Additional functions provided in this package like 'get_expression' and 'plot_expression' facilitate exploring the expression data. From version 1.3.5 onwards genomic regions can be provided as input, too; and from version 1.5.9 onwards the function 'get_annotated_genes' offers an easy way to obtain annotations of genes to enriched or user-defined brain regions.
