Hello Biostars Community,
I feel like I am missing something fundamental here.
GenomicFeatures Why isn’t there a function like
intronsBy() to extract introns by gene rather than transcript (ie
intronsByTranscript()), the same way there is a function like
exonsBy to extract exons by gene.
In other words, in the
GenomicFeatures documentation there is:
## Get the exons grouped by gene: exonsBy(txdb, "gene")
However, for introns there is:
## Get the introns grouped by transcript: intronsByTranscript(txdb)
while there is not a function like this:
## Get the introns grouped by gene: intronsBy(txdb, "gene")
Could someone share their insights, please, to sort of solidify my understanding? There has to be some method to this madness!
Thank you in advance.
