genMerge: Post-Genomic Analysis


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.


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


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.
