Annotations of Mouse Entrez Genes (EG) by Disease Ontology (DO).


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


org.Mm.egDO <- dRDataLoader(RData = "org.Mm.egDO")


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. DO 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"
