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outdated names (e.g. IGHV1-f) with the new IMGT names.
- vector of strings respresenting IGHV allele names.
Vector of strings respresenting updated IGHV allele names.
IGMT has removed
IGHV2-5*07 as it has determined they
are actually alleles
04, respectively. The updated allele
names are based on IMGT release 2014-08-4.

# 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.
