Description

A internal helper function which merges closely positioned nucleosomes to rectify the over splitting and provide a more conservative approach. Beware that each chromosome must be treated separatly.

The function uses the Bioconductor package consensusSeeker to group closely positioned nucleosomes.

Usage

2
postMerge(startPosForwardReads, startPosReverseReads, resultRJMCMC,
  extendingSize, chrLength, minReads = 5)

Arguments

startPosReverseReads

a vector of numeric, the start position of all the reverse reads. Beware that the start position of a reverse read is always higher that the end positition.

resultRJMCMC

an object of class 'rjmcmcNucleosomes' or 'rjmcmcNucleosomesMerge' containing informations about nucleosomes.

extendingSize

a positive numeric or a positive integer indicating the size of the consensus region used to group closeley positioned nucleosomes.The minimum size of the consensus region is equal to twice the value of the extendingSize parameter. The numeric will be treated as an integer.

chrLength

a positive numeric or a positive integer indicating the lenght of the current chromosome. The length of the chromosome is used to ensure that the consensus positions are all located inside the chromosome.

minReads

a positive integer or numeric, the minimum number of reads in a potential canditate region. Non-integer values of minReads will be casted to integer and truncated towards zero. Default: 5.

startPosFrowardReads

a vector of numeric, the start position of all the forward reads.

Value

a array of numeric, the updated values of the nucleosome positions.
