getSeqsFromGRs: Retrieve sequences flanking back-spliced junctions

Description Usage Arguments Value Examples

View source: R/getSeqsFromGRs.R

Description

The function getSeqsFromGRs() includes 3 modules to retrieve 3 types of sequences. Sequences of the introns flanking back-spliced junctions, sequences from a defined genomic window surrounding the back-spliced junctions and sequences of the back-spliced exons.

Usage

1
getSeqsFromGRs(annotatedBSJs, genome, lIntron = 100, lExon = 10, type = "ie")

Arguments

annotatedBSJs

A data frame with the annotated back-spliced junctions. This data frame can be generated with annotateBSJs.

genome

A BSgenome object containing the genome sequences. It can be generated with in getBSgenome. See available.genomes to see the BSgenome package currently available

lIntron

An integer indicating how many nucleotides are taken from the introns flanking the back-spliced junctions. This number must be positive. Default value is 100.

lExon

An integer indicating how many nucleotides are taken from the back-spliced exons starting from the back-spliced junctions. This number must be positive. Default value is 10.

type

A character string specifying the sequences to retrieve. If type = "ie" the sequences are retrieved from the the genomic ranges defined by using the lIntron and lExon given in input. If type = "bse" the sequences of the back-spliced exons are retrieved. If type = "fi" the sequences of the introns flanking the back-spliced exons are retrieved. Default value is "ie".

Value

A list.
