I am doing RNAseq analysis and I am using ballgown procedure for it.

There is an option in R to calculate differentially expressed genes and use FPKM in calculating differential gene expression, which is the following:

results_genes = stattest(bg_filt, feature="gene", covariate="state", getFC=TRUE, meas="FPKM")

When accessing head(results_genes) there is a column named id that contain gene names.

While some genes contain more or less readable names, others look like gene-LOC100037748, gene-LOC100037751, gene-LOC100037760 etc...

Can I create a column with real gene names that correspond to these? Is there a sort of API or something maybe?
