consensusSeekeR : Detection of consensus regions inside a group of experiments using genomic positions and genomic ranges

Build Status codecov

This R package compares multiple narrowPeak data from different experiments to extract common peak regions. The size of the analyzed region is adjustable, as well as the number of experiences in which a peak must be present to tag a potential region as a consensus region. If needed, the consensus regions can be extended to cover the entire regions of enclosed peaks.
