Description

Absolute distance between two sets of genomic regions

Usage

1
genomicCorr.absdist(query, reference, method = mean, ...)

Arguments

query

genomic region 1, a GRanges object

reference

genomic region 2, a GRanges object

method

function in which input is a vector of distance and output is a scalar

...

pass to method

Details

For regions in query and reference, they are all degenerated as single points which are the middle points of corresponding regions. For each middle point in query, it looks for the nearest point in reference. Assuming the distance vector is d, the final statistic is method(d).
