GenomicRegionsAnnotate(.Object1, .Object2, ...)

Arguments

.Object1

An object of class GenomicRegions

.Object2

An object of class GenomicAnnotations

...

See below

AnnotationsHeaders:

Names of optional annotations fields from GenomicAnnotations object that are used to annotate the GenomicRegions object. Multiple annotation fields can be used

sep.character:

Character sequence used to separate annotation features

complete.inclusion:

Logical, if TRUE only annotations features entirely covered by one of the genomic regions are considered. (e.g. a gene completely included in the genomic regions from start to end) If FALSE also partial overlapping annotation features are used

annotationAsRange:

Logical, if TRUE only the first and last annotation features associated to each the genomic region are returned

getJustFeaturesNumber:

Logical, if TRUE only the numbers of annotation features overlapping the genomic regions are returned. If TRUE, only the first element specified with AnnotationsHeaders parameter is considered.

Details

The annotation features overlapping the input genomic regions are used to add optional annotations field to the GenomicRegions object.

If previous optional annotations fields are present, they are preserved as well in the output object

Value

A GenomicRegions object with optionalAnnotations
