I am attempting to use enrichGO in clusterProfiler to identify gene ontologies for three gene clusters (diff_genes) relative to the full set of 7000 genes (all_genes). I am getting a warning 'no genes can be mapped' that appears to relate to the format of the locus linked IDs. However, I have removed any IDs that are of a different format. I have found limited help on this topic so far at the following:

https://www.biostars.org/p/305258/ and https://github.com/YuLab-SMU/ReactomePA/issues/24

As such, I have tried raising the p and q value cutoffs just to see if I could get anything, and do not. My locus link IDs do call up genes in the Arabidopsis TAIR database (www.arabidopsis.org), some of which are uncharacterized proteins, so it's possible my genes are simply not in org.At.tair.db, but this seems surprising for about 300 genes total across the three clusters.

It seems as if I cannot attached a file, so I've copied in LocusLinkIDs-lightcyan.txt, one of the gene clusters. all_genes contains 7000 locus-linked IDs in the same format.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!

require(org.At.tair.db)
require(clusterProfiler)

genes_list = list.files(pattern="LocusLinkIDs-*")
genes_list

all_genes <- read.csv(genes_list[1],header = TRUE)

#Removed genes not having the TAIR format


for (m in c(2:4)) {

diff_genes = read.csv(genes_list[m],header = TRUE)   

GO_analysis <- enrichGO(gene = diff_genes, 
                            universe = all_genes, 
                            OrgDb = org.At.tair.db,  # contains the TAIR/Ensembl id to GO correspondence for A. thaliana
                            keyType = "TAIR",
                            ont = "ALL",              # either "BP", "CC" or "MF",
                            pAdjustMethod = "BH",
                            pvalueCutoff = 0.05, 
                            qvalueCutoff = 0.05,
                            readable = TRUE, 
                            pool = TRUE)

GO_analysis

}

It must be something at your end, because for me it is working. I think it is either due to a wrong input, or because your are 'looping'.

Please note / check that both all_genes and diff_genes are (just) character vectors.

Using the 213 IDs you pasted above as universe, and the first 75 as being differentially expressed: Note the ('unrestricted') values of the arguments that I used: pAdjustMethod = "none", pvalueCutoff = 1 and qvalueCutoff = 1. I used these to make sure I would get results!

library(org.At.tair.db)
library(clusterProfiler)

diff_genes <- all_genes[1:75]

class(all_genes)
#[1] "character"
class(diff_genes)
#[1] "character"
length(all_genes)

length(diff_genes)
