trackLinks: Create a genome browser track of links.

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

View source: R/track.R

Description

Create a Gviz-track of links (e.g. between TSSs and enhancers), where arches connect the different pairs of clusters. The height of arches can be set to scale the strength of the interaction (for example indicating higher correlation). This function is a thin wrapper around the InteractionTrack-class from the GenomicInteractions package. Currently, only scaling arch height by p-value is supported.

Usage

trackLinks(object, ...)

Arguments

object

GInteractions: Links or pairs between clusters.

...

additional arguments passed to InteractionTrack via displayPars.

Value

InteractionTrack-object from the GenomicInteractions package.
