Annotations of Human Entrez Genes (EG) by Mammalian Phenotype (MP).


An R object that contains associations between Mammalian Phenotype terms and Human Entrez Genes. This data is prepared based on and, which results in annotations of Mouse Entrez Genes. Then, these annotations are transferred to Human Entrez Genes based on


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


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. MP 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"
