patchwork.region: Detailed view of a selected regions of the genome.

Description Usage Arguments Details Author(s)

View source: R/patchwork.region.r

Description

Visualises a selected regions on a selected chromosome for closer inspection. Also shows known genes for selected region.

Usage

1
patchwork.region(CNfile=NULL,chr,region,hg18=F)

Arguments

CNfile

The <sample>_copnumbers.Rdata file generated from patchwork.plot(). If kept at default, NULL, the current working directory will be searched for it.

chr

Which chromosome you wish to view a region of. ex chr="1"

region

The region in chromosomal coordinates you wish to view. ex region=1000000:6000000

hg18

Gene list for hg19 aligned genome is default. Set hg18=T to use hg18 gene list.
