## S4 method for signature 'GenePhylostrataDb'
organism(object)

Arguments

object

A GenePhylostrataDb object.

ids

A string character vector with the gene identifiers to fetch their phylostrata. These identifiers can be only either Ensembl Gene Identifiers (ENSGXXXXX) or Entrez Gene Identifiers.

Details

The GenePhylostrataDb class and associated methods serve the purpose of storing and manipulating gene-level conservation information in the form of levels of phylogenetic strata (Neme and Tautz, 2013). One such objects is created at loading time by the VariantFiltering package with the constructor function GenePhylostrataDb(), and it is called humanGenesPhylostrata.
