catDB-class: Class '"catDB"'

catDB-classR Documentation

Class "catDB"

Description

Container for storing mappings of genes to annotation categories such as gene ontologies (GO), pathways or conserved sequence domains. The catmap slot stores a list of data.frames providing the direct assignments of genes to annotation categories (e.g. gene-to-GO mappings); catlist is a list of lists of all direct and indirect associations to the annotation categories (e.g. genes mapped to a pathway); and idconv allows to store a lookup-table for converting identifiers (e.g. array feature ids to gene ids).

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("catDB", ...).

Slots

catmap:

Object of class "list" list of data.frames

catlist:

Object of class "list" list of lists

idconv:

Object of class "ANY" list of data.frames

Methods

catlist

signature(x = "catDB"): extracts data from catlist slot

catmap

signature(x = "catDB"): extracts data from catmap slot

coerce

signature(from = "list", to = "catDB"): as(list, "catDB")

idconv

signature(x = "catDB"): extracts data from idconv slot

names

signature(x = "catDB"): extracts slot names

show

signature(object = "catDB"): summary view of catDB objects
