getKEGGIDNName {AnnBuilder}R Documentation

Functions to get/process pathway and enzyme data from KEGG


These functions extract pathway and enzyme data from KEGG The functions are used by KEGG-class.


getKEGGIDNName(object, exten = "/map\")
getLLPathMap(srcUrl, idNName, organism, fromWeb = TRUE)
mapll2EC(id, srcUrl, organism, fromWeb, sep = "\t")


srcUrl srcUrl a character string for the url where source data are available
object object a KEGG object with the slots filled with correct values
exten exten a character string for data file name as an extension
name name a character string for the name of the organism of concern. "human", "mouse", and "rat" are the valid values for now
organism organism same as name
idNName idNName a named vector normally obtained obtained by using function getKEGGIDNName
sep sep a character string for the separators used to separator entries in a file
llNEC llNEC a line of tab separated character strings with the first character string being a LocusLink id and second being the mapping enzyme (EC) names
id id a character string for the KEGG id used for different pathway files
fromWeb fromWeb a boolean to indicate whether a source data file will be read from a web site or locally


getKEGGIDNName read the data file "" from KEGG to obtain the mappings between KEGG ids and pathway names.

getKEGGOrgName takes the name for an organism and returns a short verion of the name used by KEGG for that organism.

getLLPathMap maps LocusLink ids to pathway and enzyme names for an organism using various data files from KEGG.

mapll2EC maps LocusLink ids to enzyme (EC) names for a given pathway.

parseEC extracts enzyme data from a line of tab separated character strings to map a LocusLink id to enzyme (EC) names.


getKEGGIDNName returns a named vector with KEGG ids being the names and pathway names being values.
getKEGGOrgName returns a character string.
getLLPathMap returns a list of two elements named "llec" and "llpathname". Each element is a matrix with mappings between LocusLink ids to enzyme or pathway names.
mapll2EC returns a matrix with the first column being LocusLink ids and second enzyme (EC) names.
parseEC returns two elements vector with the first element being a LocusLink id and second being the mapping enzyme (EC) names.


The functions are part of the Bioconductor project at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to provide Bioinformatics functionalities through R
