convert biological ID with KEGG API using clusterProfiler

May 3, 2016 | R on Guangchuang Yu

bitr_kegg clusterProfiler can convert biological IDs using OrgDb object via the bitr function. Now I implemented another function, bitr_kegg for converting IDs through KEGG API.
hg <- gcSample[[1]]

## [1] "4597"  "7111"  "5266"  "2175"  "755"   "23046"

eg2np <- bitr_kegg(hg, fromType='kegg', toType='ncbi-proteinid', organism='hsa')

## Warning in bitr_kegg(hg, fromType = "kegg", toType = "ncbi-proteinid",
## organism = "hsa"): 3.7% of input gene IDs are fail to map...

The ID type (both fromType & toType) should be one of ‘kegg’, ‘ncbi-geneid’, ‘ncbi-proteinid’ or ‘uniprot’. The ‘kegg’ is the primary ID used ... [Read more...]

KEGG Module Enrichment Analysis

April 13, 2016 | R on Guangchuang Yu

KEGG MODULE is a collection of manually defined functional units, called KEGG modules and identified by the M numbers, used for annotation and biological interpretation of sequenced genomes. There are four types of KEGG modules: pathway modules – representing tight functional units in KEGG metabolic pathway maps, such as M00002 (Glycolysis, ... [Read more...]

embed images in ggplot2 via subview and annotate a phylogenetic tree with images using inset function

March 19, 2016 | R on Guangchuang Yu

I extended the subview function to support embed image file in a ggplot object.
d = data.frame(x=rnorm(10), y=rnorm(10))

imgfile <- tempfile(, fileext=".png")
              destfile=imgfile, mode='wb')

p = ggplot(d, aes(x, y))
subview(p, imgfile, x=d$x[1], y=d$y[1]) + geom_point(size=5)
In previous post, I have introduced using annotation_image function for annotating tips with local images. Now with the updated subview function, we can use inset function to annotate nodes/tips with image files and/... [Read more...]

ggtree supports phylip tree format

January 14, 2016 | R on Guangchuang Yu

Phylip is also a widely used tree format, which contains taxa sequences with Newick tree text. In ggtree, we can use read.phylip() function to parse the file and use ggtree() to visualize the tree.
phyfile <- system.file("extdata", "sample.phy", package="ggtree")
phylip <- read.phylip(phyfile)

## 'phylip' S4 object that stored information of
##   '/Users/guangchuangyu/Library/R/3.2/library/ggtree/extdata/sample.phy'.
## [email protected] tree: 
## Phylogenetic tree with 15 tips and 13 internal nodes.
## Tip labels:
##  K, N, D, L, J, G, ...
## Unrooted; no branch lengths.
## with sequence alignment available (15 sequences of length 2148)

ggtree(phylip) + geom_tiplab()
User can view the sequence alignment with the tree via msaplot() function.

label edge number in ggtree

January 12, 2016 | R on Guangchuang Yu

This is a question from ggtree user. In ape and phytools, it’s easy to label edge using the edgelabels function.
tr = rtree(30)
plot(tr, main="ape")
I don’t see any necessity to label edge numbers, as they are meaningless. The number is labeled as the row index of tr$edge, and edge can ...

I have played with emoji in R for a while. My solution of using it is different from what implemented in emoGG. emoGG is a good attemp to add emoji in ggplot2. It render emoji picture (png) and creat a layer, geom_emoji, to add emoji. In my opinion, emoji ...
