xlahomology {xlahomology}R Documentation

Contains data for genes that are homologous to genes in Xenopus laevis


This package stores annotation data for homologous genes across organisms that have homologous relationships with genes in Xenopus laevis. Homologous genes are genes that share an arbitrary threshold level of similarity determined by alignment of matching bases


Data stored in this package are for homologous genes of Xenopus laevis. Homologous genes of other organisms are stored in separate packages with names in the format of three-letter organism code plus homology. The three-letter organism code consists the first letter of the genus name and the first two letters of the species name (e. g. hsa for Homo sapiens).

Help files for individual data environments contain detail information about the data and the usage.

The package was built using a downloadable R package - AnnBuilder (download and build your own) from www.bioconductor.org using the following public data sources:

HomoloGene: ftp://ftp.ncbi.nih.gov/pub/HomoloGene/old/hmlg.ftp. Built: HomoloGene built date not available

The function xlahomology() provides information about the data files
