findOverlappingPeaks

0th

Percentile

Find the overlapping peaks for two peak ranges.

Find the overlapping peaks for two input peak ranges.

This function is to keep the backward compatibility with previous versions for RangedData object.

The new function findOverlapsOfPeaks is recommended.

Convert RangedData to GRanges with toGRanges function.

Usage
findOverlappingPeaks(Peaks1, Peaks2, maxgap = 0L, minoverlap=1L, multiple = c(TRUE, FALSE), NameOfPeaks1 = "TF1", NameOfPeaks2 = "TF2", select=c("all", "first","last","arbitrary"), annotate = 0, ignore.strand=TRUE, connectedPeaks=c("min", "merge"), ...)
Arguments
Peaks1
RangedData: See example below.
Peaks2
RangedData: See example below.
maxgap
Non-negative integer. Intervals with a separation of maxgap or less are considered to be overlapping.
minoverlap
Non-negative integer. Intervals with an overlapping of minoverlap or more are considered to be overlapping.
multiple
TRUE or FALSE: TRUE may return multiple overlapping peaks in Peaks2 for one peak in Peaks1; FALSE will return at most one overlapping peaks in Peaks2 for one peak in Peaks1. This parameter is kept for backward compatibility, please use select.
NameOfPeaks1
Name of the Peaks1, used for generating column name.
NameOfPeaks2
Name of the Peaks2, used for generating column name.
select
all may return multiple overlapping peaks, first will return the first overlapping peak, last will return the last overlapping peak and arbitrary will return one of the overlapping peaks.
annotate
Include overlapFeature and shortestDistance in the OverlappingPeaks or not. 1 means yes and 0 means no. Default to 0.
ignore.strand
When set to TRUE, the strand information is ignored in the overlap calculations.
connectedPeaks
If multiple peaks involved in overlapping in several groups, set it to "merge" will count it as only 1, while set it to "min" will count it as the minimal involved peaks in any concered groups

Objects of GRanges or RangedData: See also findOverlapsOfPeaks.
Details

Efficiently perform overlap queries with an interval tree implemented in IRanges.

Value

OverlappingPeaks
a data frame consists of input peaks information with added information: overlapFeature (upstream: peak1 resides upstream of the peak2; downstream: peak1 resides downstream of the peak2; inside: peak1 resides inside the peak2 entirely; overlapStart: peak1 overlaps with the start of the peak2; overlapEnd: peak1 overlaps with the end of the peak2; includeFeature: peak1 include the peak2 entirely) and shortestDistance (shortest distance between the overlapping peaks)
MergedPeaks
RangedData contains merged overlapping peaks
