Download Ensembl reference genome

downloadEnsemblGenome(
  organism,
  genomeBuild = NULL,
  release = NULL,
  outputDir = "."
)

Arguments

organism

character(1). Full Latin organism name (e.g. "Homo sapiens").

genomeBuild

character(1). Ensembl genome build assembly name (e.g. "GRCh38"). If set NULL, defaults to the most recent build available. Note: don't pass in UCSC build IDs (e.g. "hg38").

release

integer(1). Ensembl release version (e.g. 90). We recommend setting this value if possible, for improved reproducibility. When left unset, the latest release available via AnnotationHub/ensembldb is used. Note that the latest version available can vary, depending on the versions of AnnotationHub and ensembldb in use.

outputDir

character(1). Output directory path.

Value

Invisible list.
