I'm wondering - what relations does the GOBPANCESTOR function in the GO.db package use to collect the ancestors of a given GO:BP class? Is it just the is-a relations, or does it include part-of and/or regulatory relations as well?
It includes all of those:
con <- GO_dbconn()
table(dbGetQuery(con, "select * from go_bp_parents;")$relationship_type)
is_a negatively_regulates part_of
57509 2813 5388
Thank you! That squares with what I'm seeing in my analyses.
