Hi all,

I have a list of gene names and would like to run a gene enrichment analysis. Does anyone know which kind of file I should use to import these genes to R (CSV? txt? or excel?) Gene lists is everything I needed in this file for further analysis, right?

Thanks,

Bef

Hello, Bef!

You can import both .txt and .csv file.

If you have .txt file and it is tab-delimited, would you try to type following lines?

myfile = read.delim('Address of file to be imported', sep="\t")

head(myfile) # Check the impoted data

Or, it you have have .csv file (that are delimeted by comma), please try to type following line.

myfile = read.delim('Address of file to be imported', sep=",")

 

 

Thanks,

 

Sora

If you want to import data from excel files, you can do it 

library(gdata) 
data <- read.xls(xls="Your_file.xls", sheet = 1, header = TRUE) # You can choose different sheet and have other choices

This library is very straightforward and stable, working very well
