I have some questions regarding the use of the clusterProfiler package:

1. In the compare dotplot - which categories are chosen to be shown - are these the top functions that had the lowest p-value in any of the clusters?

2. In the compare dotplot – what is the number in parentheses in the x-axis for each cluster?

3. Is it possible to run enrichDAVID when running Rstudio on a PC? It causes the R session to crash.

Thanks for the great package.

any reproducible example of using enrichDAVID that causes Rstudio crash?

ADD REPLYlink written 9 months ago by Guangchuang Yu1.0k

Thanks a lot.

Here is the code:

david <- enrichDAVID(gene = gcSample[["X1"]],
                     idType = "ENTREZ_GENE_ID",
                     annotation = "GOTERM_BP_FAT",
                     david.user = "my_mail")

(I have registered in DAVID)


The session crashes with the following error message:

Failed to write core dump. Minidumps are not enabled by default on client versions of Windows

1): These are indeed based on significance. See also this post of Guangchuang.


2): AFAIK the number of genes in each cluster.


3): I am sorry, but I don't know. (I don't use R studio).
