genMerge: Post-Genomic Analysis

Description

After we finished our slice analysis we get a up-regulated and down-regulated set. This will be the set of study genes for genMege. Given this set, genMerge retrieves functional genomic data for each gene and provides statistical rank scores for over-representation of particular functions in the dataset.

Usage

genMerge(gene.association, description, population.genes,
study.genes, output.file = "GenMerge.txt")

Arguments

gene.association The gene-association file links gene names with a particular datum of information using a shorthand of gene-association IDS
description The description file contains human-readable description of gene-association IDS
population.genes Set of all genes detected on a array
study.genes Set of genes may be those that are up-regulated or down-regulated or both of them.
output.file The name of output file that includes all results obtained after this analisys.

Note

This function is completly based on GeneMerge from Cristian I. Castillo-Davis and Daniel L. Hartl
