View source: R/kMer.r

Description

Counts DNA K-mers for reverse complement of given DNA sequence. The k-mers are counted in a set of search windows, which are defined by start and width parameter. From each position of the search window, a DNA k-mer is identified on the left hand side on the reverse complement of the given DNA sequence. Each value in the start vector defindes the right border of a search window. The size of the search window is given by the appropriate value in the width vector.

Arguments

dna

character. Single DNA sequence (vector of length 1). dna must not contain other characters as "ATCGN". Capitalization does not matter. When a 'N' character is found, the ongoing identification of a DNA k-mer is terminated.

k

numeric. Number of nucleotides in tabled DNA motifs.

start

numeric. Vector of (1-based) start positions for reading frames.

width

numeric. Defines number of k-mers (size of search window) for each start position. Must have the same length as start or length 1 (in which case the values of width are recycled.)

Details

The start positions for identification of DNA k-mers are all positions in {start-width+1,...,start}. In order to prevent counting before the first nucleotide of the DNA sequence, all start values must be >= width+k. The function throws an error when this border is exceeded.

Value

matrix. Each colum containts the motif-count values for one frame. Each row represents one DNA motif. The DNA sequence of the DNA motif is given as row.name.
