Annotations of Human Entrez Genes (EG) by H hallmark collections.


This data is prepared based on the molecular signatures database (Msigdb; An R object that contains associations between Msigdb H hallmark gene sets and Human Entrez Genes. This collection is the starting point for the exploration of the MSigDB resource. Hallmark gene sets summarize and represent specific well-defined biological states or processes and display coherent expression. These gene sets were generated by a computational methodology based on identifying gene set overlaps and retaining genes that display coordinate expression. The hallmarks reduce noise and redundancy and provide a better delineated biological space.


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


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"
