Using this function, you can search your genes in PANTHER database and retrieve attributes and annotations associated to your genes.


rba_panther_mapping(genes, organism, ...)



Character vector of genes identifiers with maximum length of 1000. Can be any of: Ensemble gene ID, Ensemble protein ID, Ensemble transcript ID, Entrez gene ID, gene symbol, NCBI GI, HGNC ID, International protein index ID, NCBI UniGene ID, UniProt accession and/or UniProt ID.


(numeric) NCBI taxon ID. run rba_panther_info with argument 'what = "organisms"' to get a list of PANTHER's supported organisms.


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


A list containing your unmapped inputs and mapped genes with pertinent information.
