The R package HCGene (Hierarchical Classification of Genes) implements methods to process and analyze the Gene Ontology and the FunCat taxonomy in order to support the functional classification of genes. HCGene allows the extraction of subgraphs and subtrees related to specific biological problems, the labelling of genes and gene products with multiple and hierarchical functional classes, and the association of different types of bio-molecular data to genes for learning to predict their functions.
