This package is for version 3.9 of Bioconductor;
for the stable, up-to-date release version, see

Genome Intervals and Read Alignments for Functional Exploration

Bioconductor version: 3.9

The package ‘girafe’ deals with the genome-level representation of aligned reads from next-generation sequencing data. It contains an object class for enabling a detailed description of genome intervals with aligned reads and functions for comparing, visualising, exporting and working with such intervals and the aligned reads. As such, the package interacts with and provides a link between the packages ShortRead, IRanges and genomeIntervals.

Author: Joern Toedling, with contributions from Constance Ciaudo, Olivier Voinnet, Edith Heard, Emmanuel Barillot, and Wolfgang Huber
