Description

Find and annotate closest genes to genomic regions

Usage

1
matchGenes(x, subject, type = c("any", "fiveprime"), promoterDist = 2500, skipExons = FALSE, verbose = TRUE)

Arguments

x

An IRanges or GenomicRanges object, or a data.frame with columns for start, end, and, optionally, chr or seqnames.

subject

An GenomicRanges object containing transcripts or genes that have been annotated by the function annotateTranscripts.

promoterDist

Anything within this distance to the transcription start site (TSE) will be considered a promoter.

type

Should the distance be computed to any part of the transcript or the five prime end.

skipExons

Should the annotation of exons be skipped. Skipping this part makes the code slightly faster.

verbose

logical value. If 'TRUE', it writes out some messages indicating progress. If 'FALSE' nothing should be printed.

Details

This function runs nearest and then annotates the the relationship between the region and the transcript/gene that is closest. Many details are provided on this relationship as described in the next section.

Value

A data frame with one row for each query and with columns c("name", "annotation", "description", "region", "distance", "subregion", "insideDistance", "exonnumber", "nexons", "UTR", "strand", "geneL", "codingL","Entrez","subhectHits"). The first column is the _gene_ nearest the query, by virtue of it owning the transcript determined (or chosen by nearest) to be nearest the query. Note that the nearest gene to a given query, in column 3, may not be unique and we arbitrarily chose one as done by default by nearest.

The "distance" column is the distance from the query to the 5' end of the nearest transcript, so may be different from the distance computed by nearest to that transcript, as a range.

name

Symbol of nearest gene

annotation

RefSeq ID
