I have been using clusterProfiler, which is a very useful package for gene set analysis and visualisation. I would like to use the ‘cnetplot’ function to plot a network of GO terms and the related genes. However for larger networks, the automatic display can be confusing and it would be helpful to be able to move nodes around. In the past I could do this with with cnetplot(fixed=FALSE) option, but after updating R and re-installing clusterProfiler, the output remains static.

I am using R 3.5.3 with clusterProfiler v3.10.1 which I installed using Bioconductor 3.8. I have installed and loaded the ‘igraph’ package, and the following test code produces output in an interactive window, as desired:

library(igraph) g <- make_ring(10) tkplot(g)

Is there any way to make cnetplot output interactive, or is that functionality simply not available in the latest release?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

By manually curating over 100 000 published papers, 4124 entries including the cell marker information, tissue type, cell type, cancer information and source, were recorded. At last, 13 605 cell markers of 467 cell types in 158 human tissues/sub-tissues and 9148 cell makers of 389 cell types in 81 mouse tissues/sub-tissues were collected and deposited in CellMarker.

生信界的网红Stephen Turner在github上有个msigdf的包,我在他写这个包的时候,就写了个gist,连接clusterProfiler,我写gist的时候是2016年的8月,很高兴网红还惦记着我的gist

msigdf这个包把著名的Broad Institute著名的Molecular Signatures Database (MSigDB)数据以data frame的形式打包成R包,这样子非常方便使用,当然他后来没有更新,而一个fork的版本,ToledoEM/msigdf把数据更新为最新版本v6.2,发布于2018年7月。

we had a quick email exchange about this and I would like to report this. (I appologise for contacting you directly, rather than following the submission guideline). I have a dataset with 6166 proteins of which 201 proteins are upregulated. The problem is that specifying the background proteins using universe argument in clusterProfiler, decreases the number of significant GO categories (28 significant categories without the universe argument and 5 with this argument). At the same time when I use online GORILLA tool I get a lot of categories, with the background:


and not categories without the background:


I am not sure whether this is a bug or not, so I decided to report it here

The dataset is presented below …

allProtUGO <- enrichGO(gene = upRegProt, OrgDb = org.Hs.eg.db,  keyType = "UNIPROT",  ont='ALL', pool = TRUE, 
                   qvalueCutoff = 0.05)

identifiedProtUGO <- enrichGO(gene = upRegProt, OrgDb = org.Hs.eg.db, keyType = “UNIPROT”, ont='ALL’, pool = TRUE, qvalueCutoff = 0.05, universe = backgroundProt)

dim (allProtUGO@result) dim (identifiedProtUGO@result)
