Gene set enrichment data structures and methods


This package provides classes and methods to support Gene Set Enrichment Analysis (GSEA). The GeneSet class provides a common data structure for representing gene sets. The GeneColorSet class allows genes in a set to be associated with phenotypes. The GeneSetCollection class facilitates grouping together a list of related gene sets. The GeneIdentifierType class hierarchy reflects how genes are represented (e.g., Entrez versus symbol) in the gene set. mapIdentifiers provides a way to convert identifiers in a set from one type to another. The CollectionType class hierarchy reflects how the gene set was made, and can order genes into distinct sets or collections.
