YEASTDESCRIPTION {YEAST}R Documentation

An annotation data file that maps Open Reading Frame (ORF) identifiers to textural descriptions of the corresponding genes

Description

YEASTDESCRIPTION maps yeast ORF ids to descriptive information about genes corresponding to the ORF ids

Details

This is an environment object containing key and value pairs. Keys are ORF ids and values are the corresponding descriptions of genes. Values are vectors of length 1. Probe ids that can not be mapped to descriptive information are assigned a value NA.

Annotation based on data provided by:

Examples

        require("annotate") || stop("annotate unavailable")
        xx <- as.list(YEASTDESCRIPTION)
        if(length(xx) > 0){
                # Get the value of the first key
                xx[[1]]
                # Get the values for a few keys
                if(length(xx) >= 3){
                        xx[1:3]
                }
