I am trying to change the labels in ggbio's autoplot output (specifically, when the input is a TxDb) so that the transcripts are labelled with the corresponding gene symbol. What I'm starting with is the following code:
library(ggbio) library(GenomicRanges) wh <- GRanges(seqnames='chr18', ranges=IRanges(start=11688900,end=11885700) ) library(TxDb.Hsapiens.UCSC.hg19.knownGene) txdb <- TxDb.Hsapiens.UCSC.hg19.knownGene autoplot(txdb, which = wh)
The output is very nice, but the transcripts are labelled with transcript identifiers such as uc002kqh.3, etc. I would like to replace these labels with gene symbols, but despite poring through the documentation I can see no way to do this. Any ideas?
