Description

Retrieves genes from the UCSC Genome Browser and generate the genes plot.

Usage

plotGenes(minRange, maxRange, chromosome, genome = "hg19", plot_lines_distance = 0.03,
vp = viewport(x = 0, y = 0.99, just = c("left", "top")), splice_variants = TRUE,
non_coding = TRUE)

Arguments

minRange

The sequence minimum range in base pairs.

maxRange

The sequence maximum range in base pairs.

chromosome

A character string identifying the chromosome.

genome

The genome assembly to use. The default is hg19, the most recent human genome assembly on the UCSC genome browser.

plot_lines_distance

The distance between the lines of genes plotted.

vp

A viewport.

splice_variants

If FALSE, exclude gene splice variants.

non_coding

If FALSE, exclude non-coding genes.

Details

The genes are color coded as follows: Black – feature has a corresponding entry in the Protein Data Bank (PDB) Dark blue – transcript has been reviewed or validated by either the RefSeq, SwissProt or CCDS staff Medium blue – other RefSeq transcripts Light blue – non-RefSeq transcripts

For assemblies older than hg18, all genes are plotted in grey.

Value

A grob of gene plots.
