Kegg Visualisation

Typing name :  TASK.gws_gena.KEGGVisualisation Brick :  gws_gena v

Generate KEGG pathway from a list of genes.

Generates a KEGG pathway using the genes specified in the input.

Please provide a list of genes such as: ,FoldChange Gene1,value Gene2,value

If you don't have gene expression, just provide the gene names with a header. If you want to compare more than one fold change, add the other fold change in the following columns. In the output, each box of the pathway will be separated depending on the number of fold changes. So the colours may be different depending on the condition.

For the specie, you need to provide the kegg.code. You can find the list of allowed values attached to this story: https://constellab.community/stories/e330483b-5b9e-452c-b5a4-f6b62506c9ad/how-to-visualise-a-kegg-pathway-using-constellab#introduction

Organism names are constructed by concatenating the first letter of the name and the family name. Example: human - 'hsapiens', mouse - 'mmusculus'. You can find the complete list here: https://biit.cs.ut.ee/gprofiler/page/organism-list

Be aware that this task can take some time, especially the first time, as a virtual environment has to be installed, and also depending on the length of the genes provided, it can take more time.

In the output you will also get a Table with the pathways where genes are mapped, but these pathways can't be shown with the pathview package.
