Annotations of Human Entrez Genes (EG) by C4:CM collections.


This data is prepared based on the molecular signatures database (Msigdb; An R object that contains associations between Msigdb C4:CM (cancer modules) gene sets and Human Entrez Genes. C4:CM gene sets are defined in; the authors first compiled gene sets ('modules') from a variety of resources such as KEGG, GO, and others, and then by mining a large compendium of cancer-related microarray data, they identified 456 such modules as significantly changed in a variety of cancer conditions.


org.Hs.egMsigdbC4CM <- dRDataLoader(RData.customised = "org.Hs.egMsigdbC4CM")


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, and the 4 columns are "setID" (i.e. "Geneset standard name"), "name" (i.e. "Geneset brief description"), "namespace" (i.e. Geneset category code) and "distance" (i.e. "Geneset full description")
  • 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"
