updateAlleleNames - Update IGHV allele names
updateAlleleNames takes a set of IGHV allele calls and replaces any
outdated names (e.g. IGHV1-f) with the new IMGT names.
- a vector of strings respresenting IGHV allele names
vector of strings respresenting updated IGHV allele names
The updated allele names are based on IMGT release 201408-4.
IGMT has removed IGHV2-510 and IGHV2-507 as it has determined they are actually alleles 02 and 04, respectively.

# Create a vector that uses old gene/allele names. alleles = c("IGHV1-c*01", "IGHV1-f*02", "IGHV2-5*07") # Update the alleles to the new names updateAlleleNames(alleles)
 "IGHV1-38-4*01" "IGHV1-69-2*02" "IGHV2-5*04"
updateAlleleNames, sortAlleles can help
format a list of allele names.
