Description

Lower level function that adds alignments to wiggle tracks of read pileups for one sample.

Usage

1
2
3
alignToWig( filein, reload = TRUE, annotationFile = "Annotation.txt", optionsFile = "Options.txt", 
	results.path = NULL, dataType = "RNA-seq", readSense = "sense",  maxReads = NULL,
	readBufferSize = 1000000)

Arguments

filein

The name of one sorted BAM file.

reload

Ligical. Should a new empty wiggle track data structure be created, or if FALSE add to an existing wiggle track data structure.

annotationFile

File of sample annotation details, which specifies all needed sample-specific information about the samples under study. See DuffyNGS_Annotation.

optionsFile

File of processing options, which specifies all processing parameters that are not sample specific. See DuffyNGS_Options.

results.path

The top level folder path for writing result files to. By default, read from the Options file entry 'results.path'.

dataType

The type of read data contained in the aligned BAM file.

readSense

One of "sense" or "antisense". Controls the behavior of how alignments are assigned to the strands.

maxReads

Optional integer. Sets a maximum count for how many alignments will be loaded from this BAM file.

readBufferSize

Integer. Sets the buffer sizer for reading in alignments in efficient chunks.

Details

This low level function is called repeatedly to combine genomic and splice BAM files.

Value

A family of binary .WIG files is written to the wig subfolder. Also the function returns an integer giving the number of buffers of alignments that it processed, where zero denotes an error.
