UG-class {AnnBuilder}R Documentation

Class "UG" a sub-class of pubRepo to handle data from UniGene

Description

This class is a sub-class of pubRepo that is implemented specifically to parse data from UniGene (XX.data.gz, where XX is a abbreviation for a given organism)

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("UG", ...). A constructor (UG) is available and should be used to instatiate objects of this class

Slots

orgName:
Object of class "character" a character string for the name of the organism of concern
srcUrl:
Object of class "character", from class "pubRepo" a character string for the url of the source data
parser:
Object of class "character", from class "pubRepo" a character string for the name of the file containing a segment of perl code with instructions on how the source data will be processed and output be generated
baseFile:
Object of class "character", from class "pubRepo" a character string for the name of the file that contains data that will be used as the base to process the source data. Data from the source that are related to elements in the base file will be extracted. baseFile is assumed to be a two folumn file with the first column being some type of arbitrary ids (e.g. Affymetrix probe ids) and the second cloumn being the corresponding ids of a given public repository (e.g. GenBank accession numbers or UniGene ids)

Extends

Class "pubRepo", directly.

Methods

orgName<-
signature(object = "UG"): Sets the value for the organism slot
orgName
signature(object = "UG"): Gets the value for the organism slot

Note

This class is part of Bioconductor project at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to provide Bioinformatics functionalities through R
