Description Usage Arguments Details Value Note See Also Examples

Description

Gets useful human genome gene identifiers from GeneIDs

Usage

1
getHumanIDterms(geneIDs)

Arguments

geneIDs

character vector of GeneIDs

Details

The rule about unique GeneIDs can make for some 'less than universal' gene identifiers. This function makes it easy to supplement a results data frame with more universal gene terms. Usually invoked as:

1
  tbl <- cbind( getHumanIDterms(tbl$GENE_ID), tbl)

Value

A list with 2 elements:

GENE_NAME

the common gene symbol or nickname ortion of the GeneIDs

ENTREZ_ID

the EntrezID number portion of the GeneIDs

Note

This function assumes that the common gene symbol and EntrezID are extractable substrings of the given GeneIDs, in the pattern used for the human GeneIDs.

  getHumanIDterms( c("WASH7P:GI653635:01:14362","FAM138A:GI645520:01:34611"))
