summary, annotation and visualization of genomic intervals with genomation package

February 18, 2014

We have been working on new R package, genomation, that will help with the analysis of genomic intervals. Briefly, the package contains a collection of tools for visualizing and analyzing genome-wide data sets. The package works with a variety of genomic interval file types (BAM, bigWig, BED, GFF and any tabular format containing genomic locations) and enables easy summarization and annotation of high throughput data sets with given genomic annotations. Below is a presentation I’m preparing for an upcoming internal meeting. More information and the vignette is on the webpage.
