[Bioc 3.5] NEWS of my BioC packages

I have 8 packages published within the Bioconductor project.

A new package treeio was included in BioC 3.5 release.


Bug fixed of intron rank and optimized getGeneAnno function.


  1. Defined simplify generics as it was removed from IRanges.
  2. enrichGO now supports ont="ALL" and will test three GO ontologies simultaneously.
  3. dotplot for compareClusterResult not supports three GO sub-ontologies.
  4. bitr_kegg supports converting Path/Module to geneID and vice versa.
  5. plotGOgraph supports gseGO output by using core enriched gene.
  6. see the updates of DOSE for other updates.


  • Now user can use options(mc.cores=x) to specify x cores for GSEA analysis.
  • throw more friendly error msg if setReadable function fail to determine setType automatically.
  • Call grid.newpage in gseaplot only if dev.interactive() is TRUE.
  • dotplot now supports gseaResult.
  • Output expected sample gene ID (sample from background) when input gene ID type not match.


Now ggtree was splitted to treeio for tree input and output, and ggtree for tree visualization and annotation.
