Arguments

x

A TxDb object.

ranges

A GRanges object to restrict the output.

maxgap,minoverlap,type

Used in the internal call to findOverlaps() to detect overlaps. See ?findOverlaps in the IRanges package for a description of these arguments.

...

Arguments to be passed to or from methods.

columns

Columns to include in the output. See ?transcripts for the possible values.

Details

These functions subset the results of transcripts, exons, and cds function calls with using the results of findOverlaps calls based on the specified ranges.

Value

a GRanges object
