Annotations of Human Entrez Genes (EG) by Human Phenotype Clinical Modifier (HPCM).


An R object that contains associations between HPCM terms and Human Entrez Genes. This data is first prepared based on and


org.Hs.egHPCM <- dRDataLoader(RData = "org.Hs.egHPCM")


an object of class "GS", a list with following components:

  • set_info: a matrix of nSet X 4 containing gene set information, where nSet is the number of gene sets (i.e. HPCM terms), and the 4 columns are "setID" (i.e. "Term ID"), "name" (i.e. "Term Name"), "namespace" and "distance"
  • gs: a list of gene sets, each storing gene members thereof. Always, gene sets are identified by "setID" and gene members identified by "Entrez ID"
