Description

A GenomicRangesList is a List of GenomicRanges. It is a virtual class; SimpleGenomicRangesList is the basic implementation. The subclass GRangesList provides special behavior and is particularly efficient for storing a large number of elements.

Constructor

GenomicRangesList(...): Constructs a SimpleGenomicRangesList with elements taken from the arguments in .... If the only argument is a list, the elements are taken from that list.

Coercion

as(from, "GenomicRangesList"): Supported from types include:

RangedDataList

Each element of from is coerced to a GenomicRanges.

as(from, "RangedDataList"): Supported from types include:
