JASPAR organizes matrix profiles from multiple species in six taxonomic groups. Use this function to retrieve a list of available species in a JASPAR database release.


rba_jaspar_species(release = 2024, search = NULL, order = NULL, ...)



Numeric: (default = 2024) Which JASPAR database release to use? Available options are: 2024, 2022, 2020, 2018, 2016, and 2014.


Character: A search term.


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.
