methyAnalysis: DNA methylation data analysis and visualization

The methyAnalysis package aims for the DNA methylation data analysis and visualization. A MethyGenoSet class is defined to keep the chromosome location information together with the data. The package also includes functions of estimating the methylation levels from Methy-Seq data.
