Question: How can I visualize Gene Set Enrichment Results from gseGo fun. (clusterProfiler)?

Hi, everyone.

I've been using the amazing package clusterProfiler and I have a question about visualizing the results. 

Well, I've been using the enrichGo() function and plotting its results (enrichResult obj.) with barplot() and dotplot() functions. Now, I'm using gseGo (another test, similar but not the same) and I'd like to plot the results via barplot() and dotplot() again, but I'm getting an error stating:

Error in barplot.default(gsea_BP) : 'height' must be a vector or a matrix


Error in (function (classes, fdef, mtable)  : 
  unable to find an inherited method for function 'dotplot' for signature '"gseaResult"'

The function works flawlessly for the enrichResult object.

Is there some way to tweak theses functions in order to ge them working? In any case, I thought about extracting the data from those objects and just use ggplot2 by itself.

Thank you all.

Hi, you can use dotplot to visualize GSEA results.

I didn’t implement barplot for GSEA. If you really want this function, please open a feature request issue on github.
