ENCODExplorerData: A compilation of ENCODE metadata
This package has been designed to facilitate data access by compiling the metadata associated with ENCODE files and making it available in the format of a data table. While this data can be accessed as-is, we recommend using the ENCODExplorer companion package, which contains utility functions for using the online ENCODE search function, downloading selected files, and retrieving control-treatment experimental designs from ENCODE.
ENCODExplorerData is an official Bioconductor package. You can install it using the BiocManager package:
if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE)) install.packages("BiocManager") BiocManager::install("ENCODExplorerData")
You can also obtain the current release from the BioConductor website.
Regenerating or updating ENCODE metadata
To generate up-to-date version of the data tables exported by this package,
simply run the
inst/scripts/make-data.R script. These will create files
encode_df_full.rda in the current directory.
