Finding the DNA and Protein Sequences of Any Genomic or
Using the DNA sequence and gene annotation files provided in
'ENSEMBL' < https://www.ensembl.org/index.html>,
the functions implemented in the package try to find the DNA sequences and
protein sequences of any given genomic loci, and to find the genomic coordinates
and protein sequences of any given protein locations, which are the frequent
tasks in the analysis of genomic and proteomic data.
CHANGES IN VERSION 0.0.3 (24/01/2018)
- As the version 0.0.2 did not solve the issue of creating and writting some
files in the folders that they should not be created, more modifications were done
in this version, namely putting the DNA sequence file uncompressed from the
gz file to the temporary folder.
CHANGES IN VERSION 0.0.2 (23/01/2018)
- Changed the function names of the two functions: genomicLocToProteinSequence
-> genomicLocsToProteinSequence and genomicLocToWholeDNASequence ->
genomicLocsToWholeDNASequence, in order to keep them consistent with other
- Removed "utils" from the import list in DESCRIPTION file, because it is not
used by the package.
- Addressed the issue of creating and writting some files in the folders that
they should not be created, as raised by the CRAN staff, by using the temporary
folder obtained by tempdir().
12/12/2017:the package was accepted and published by CRAN repository.
September - November 2017: the package was tested and reviewed.
January - May 2017: the package was written.
