This object is used to gather all parameters from fitting PING to multiple candidate regions (as returned by the 'segmentReads' function). The objet contains the following slots: 'List', 'paraPrior', 'paraEM', 'minReads', 'N', 'Nc'. 'List' is a list of 'ping' or 'pingError' objects. 'paraPrior' is a list containing the hyperparameters used for the prior, 'paraEM' is a list of convergence parameters for the EM, 'minReads' is a list containing the minimum number of reads used to fit a region with 'PING', 'N' is the total number of reads in the ChIP samples while 'Nc' is the total number of reads in the control sample.

`object` |
An object of class |

The PING package provide accessors to directly access to most of the parameters/standard errors and chromosomes. In the code snippets below, 'x' is a 'pingList' object. For all accessors, the 'pingError' objects are omitted, so that the accessors only return values for the 'ping' objects (i.e. all valid binding events).

- 'chromosome(x)'
Gets the chromosome names of all candidate regions.

- 'mu(x)'
Gets the position estimates of all binding sites identified in all candidate regions.

- 'delta(x)'
Gets the average fragment lengths of all binding sites identified in all candidate regions.

- 'sigmaSqF(x)'
Gets the F peak variances of all binding sites identified in all candidate regions.

- 'sigmaSqR(x)'
Gets the R peak variances of all binding sites identified in all candidate regions.

- 'seF(x)'
Gets the standard errors of all binding site position estimates identified in all candidate regions.

- 'seF(x)'
Gets the standard errors of all F peak modes identified in all candidate regions.

- 'seR(x)'
Gets the standard errors of all R peak modes identified in all candidate regions.

- 'score(x)'
Gets the scores of all binding events identified in all candidate regions.
