PROBLEM

I have the following script where I am using the export function from BSgenome package to write only the first seven chromosomes of an object (of class BSgenome) into separate files.

source("https://bioconductor.org/biocLite.R")
biocLite("BSgenome.Scerevisiae.UCSC.sacCer3")
library(BSgenome.Scerevisiae.UCSC.sacCer3)
library(BSgenome)
    
export(BSgenome.Scerevisiae.UCSC.sacCer3::Scerevisiae$chrI, "Scerevisiae_chr1.fasta", compress=FALSE)
export(BSgenome.Scerevisiae.UCSC.sacCer3::Scerevisiae$chrII, "Scerevisiae_chr2.fasta", compress=FALSE)
export(BSgenome.Scerevisiae.UCSC.sacCer3::Scerevisiae$chrIII, "Scerevisiae_chr3.fasta", compress=FALSE)
export(BSgenome.Scerevisiae.UCSC.sacCer3::Scerevisiae$chrIV, "Scerevisiae_chr4.fasta", compress=FALSE)
export(BSgenome.Scerevisiae.UCSC.sacCer3::Scerevisiae$chrV, "Scerevisiae_chr5.fasta", compress=FALSE)
export(BSgenome.Scerevisiae.UCSC.sacCer3::Scerevisiae$chrVI, "Scerevisiae_chr6.fasta", compress=FALSE)
export(BSgenome.Scerevisiae.UCSC.sacCer3::Scerevisiae$chrVII, "Scerevisiae_chr7.fasta", compress=FALSE)

The problem is that I have many other organisms for which I must do the same.

OBJECTIVE

How can I automate the export process in a way that the filename of the output matches the object and element used?

So as an example, when Scerevisiae$chrVII is exported, I want to see Scerevisiae_chrVII.fasta for the name of the FASTA file.

WHAT I HAVE TRIED AND HAS NOT WORKED

BiocGenerics::sapply(X = Scerevisiae, MARGIN = c(1:7), 
    function(x) BSgenome::export(con = paste0(substitute(x), ".fasta")))

BiocGenerics::sapply(X = Scerevisiae, FUN = export)

bsapply(new("BSParams", X = Scerevisiae, FUN = function(x) BSgenome::export(con = paste0(substitute(x), ".fasta"))))
