Examples

    # Url may change but was correct at the time of coding
    url <- "ftp://genome-ftp.stanford.edu/pub/yeast/data_download/"
    # Creat a YG object
    ygeno <- YG(srcUrl = url)
    if(interactive()){
        # Read the file named "chromosomal_feature.tab". Takes a few
        # seconds to finish
        data <- readData(ygeno,
                         "chromosomal_feature/chromosomal_feature.tab",
                         cols2Keep =c(6, 1), sep = "\t")
