Description

Extracts the requested annotation for the given genome.

Usage

1
rnb.get.annotation(type = "CpG", assembly = "hg19")

Arguments

type

Name of annotation.

assembly

Genome assembly of interest. See rnb.get.assemblies for the list of supported genomes.

Details

When the returned value is of type GRangesList, it defines the genomic positions of the requested sites, probes or regions. Identifiers, if present, can be obtained using the names method. Strand information is also included when applicable. Any additional annotation is stored as metadata in the respective GRanges objects.

Value

Probe, site or region annotation table. If the specified type refers to control probes, the returned value is a data.frame listing all respective control probes. Otherwise, this function returns an object of type GRangesList - a list of consistent GRanges objects, one per chromosome.
