pgLM-class: Class for reference based pangenome data

Description Slots See Also


This class handles pangenome information where gene sequences are kept on disc instead of stored in memory. As long as the original fasta files are not modified, this class will take care of indexing the genes correctly. This class has a substantially lower memory footprint than the pgFull class at the expense of longer sequence lookup times. For massive pangenomes containing Gb of sequence data there is no alternative though.



A data.frame as produced by fasta.index with random access information for each gene.
