org.Sc.sgd.db lacks a SYMBOL attribute and instead has COMMON and GENENAME
As a result, it does not interoperate with the clusterProfiler package when using the
readable=TRUE option (without which genes are labelled by their ENTREZID, which is relatively uninformative).
clusterProfiler's author asserts:
this is the issue of org.Sc.sgd.db which doesn't contains SYMBOL while the GENENAME (expected full name that is descriptive and verbose) is actually the SYMBOL
Might org.Sc.sgd.db be changed to provide a SYMBOL?
In the mean time, is there a recommend best, quick, clever workaround (hack) to either:
- modify the SQL backing store to use COMMON or GENENAME in place of SYMBOL
- otherwise trick clusterProfiler into using COMMON or GENENAME instead of SYMBOL
