Description

Gene functional descriptions

Usage

description(release = getOption(x = "wormbase.release", default = NULL))

Arguments

release

character(1) or NULL. WormBase release. If NULL (recommended), defaults to current production release release available on the WormBase website. Legacy releases can be specified as a character string (e.g. "WS267").

Value

DataFrame.

Note

As of WS269 release, some non-N2 gene IDs are included in the flat files available on the WormBase FTP server. These annotations are removed from the return here, using grep matching to return only WBGene entries.

This file is malformed on the WormBase FTP server for WS270 and WS271 releases.

Updated 2021-03-12.

Examples

x <- description()
print(x)
