Description

This function tries to parse ideogram information from seqlengths of a GRanges object. This information is usually used to plot chromosome background for kaytogram or esitmate proper lengths of chromosomes from data space for showing overview.

Usage

1
   getIdeoGR(gr)

Arguments

gr

A GRanges object with or without lengths information.
