BiocGenerics (version 0.18.0)

density: Kernel density estimation


The generic function density computes kernel density estimates.

NOTE: This man page is for the density S4 generic function defined in the BiocGenerics package. See ?stats::density for the default method (defined in the stats package). Bioconductor packages can define specific methods for objects not supported by the default method.


density(x, ...)


x, ...
See ?stats::density.


See ?stats::density for the value returned by the default method.Specific methods defined in Bioconductor packages should behave as consistently as possible with the default method.
