Details

This function provides a quick way to add phecode descriptions and group names. It will select the first column matching any of "phecode", "phewas" or "pheno" to merge on. If none is identified, it reports a warning and attempts the merge with the first column. Phecodes must be character vectors, otherwise they may have inaccurate mappings. If PheWAS codes are factors it will convert them to characters, give a warning, and attempt to map them. If a character (or factor) variable or vector is passed in, it will return code descriptions for those codes.

Value

Data frame with added columns:

description

The description of the phecode.

group

The name of the phecode group.

groupnum

The assigned number of the phecode group.

color

The default plotting color of the phecode group.
