Description

This method reduces a BSraw object to its regions (or single CpGs) with a minimum number of reads.

Usage

1
filterByCov(object, minCov, global)

Arguments

object

A BSraw.

minCov

Minimum number of reads overlapping the CpG sites.

global

A logical indicating whether the regions should achieve the minimum coverage in each sample. If global = TRUE the filtered object will consist of the regions achieving the minimum coverage in all samples. If global = FALSE (default) this function filters the regions for each sample separately, irrespectively of the coverages in other samples. totalReads and methReads are set to zero, if the minimum coverage is not obtained. Regions covered too sparse in all samples are dropped.

Value

A BSraw object containing the CpGs or regions achieving the minimum coverage in all (if global=TRUE) or at least one (if global=FALSE) samples.
