hic_example_data: Example HiC dataset

Description Usage Format Value References


This dataset contains HiC data from Seitan et al. 2013. The data was analysed using HOMER (Heinz et al. 2010) at a resolution of 100kb to find significant interactions. This example dataset has been filtered to retain only interactions on chromosomes 14 and 15 with a FDR < 0.1. The data has also been annotated for overlaps with Refseq promoters. See the HiC analysis vignette (vignettes(GenomicInteractions)) for more information on how this dataset was created.




A GenomicInteractions object with length 8171.
