This function will search the gene and retrieve a list of Enrichr Terms that contains that gene.


rba_enrichr_gene_map(gene, catagorize = FALSE, organism = "human", ...)



character: An Entrez gene symbol.


logical: Should the category informations be included?


(default = "human") Which model organism version of Enrichr to use? Available options are: "human", (H. sapiens & M. musculus), "fly" (D. melanogaster), "yeast" (S. cerevisiae), "worm" (C. elegans) and "fish" (D. rerio).


rbioapi option(s). See rba_options's arguments manual for more information on available options.
