Since JASPAR release 2010, the matrix profiles are versioned; So, a matrix profile Identifier has "base_id.version" naming schema. Using this function you can retrieve a list of matrix profiles associated with a base (stable) ID.

rba_jaspar_matrix_versions(base_id, order = NULL, ...)



Character: A base (stable) Identifier. A matrix profile identifier has "base_id.version" naming schema


Character: A character string or a vector of character strings of field names that will be used to order the results.
Providing multiple field names is supported. You can also use prefix "-" before a field name to indicate reverse ordering.


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


A data frame of matrix profiles' versions information.
