Hits-class-leftovers: Examples of basic manipulation of Hits objects


IMPORTANT NOTE - 4/29/2014: This man page is being refactored. Most of the things that used to be documented here have been moved to the man page for Hits objects located in the S4Vectors package.



In the code snippets below, x is a Hits object.
as(from, "DataFrame"): Creates a DataFrame by combining the result of as.matrix(from) with mcols(from). Attempts to coerce the result of as(from, "DataFrame") to a data.frame.
as(x, "List"): Like as.list, above.


The method coerces a Hits object to a two column data.frame with one row for each hit, where the value in the first column is the index of an element in the query and the value in the second column is the index of an element in the subject.

Run this code
query <- IRanges(c(1, 4, 9), c(5, 7, 10))
subject <- IRanges(c(2, 2, 10), c(2, 3, 12))
hits <- findOverlaps(query, subject)


as.table(hits) # hits per query
as.table(t(hits)) # hits per subject

## Turn a Hits object into an IntegerList object with one list element
## per element in the original query.
as(hits, "IntegerList")
as(hits, "List")  # same as as(hits, "IntegerList")

## Turn a Hits object into a PartitioningByEnd object that describes
## the grouping of hits by query.
as(hits, "PartitioningByEnd")
as(hits, "Partitioning")  # same as as(hits, "PartitioningByEnd")

hits2 <- remapHits(hits,
                   Rnodes.remapping=factor(c("e", "e", "d"), letters[1:5]))

hits3 <- remapHits(hits,
                   Rnodes.remapping=c(5, 5, 4), new.nRnode=5)
stopifnot(identical(hits2, hits3))
