Today I improved the importVCF() function. Now, also the different INFO fields of a vcf are imported and are now also accessible. Further, in case of ‘A/B’ notation of genotypes, both variants A/B and B/A are now interpreted as 01.
Aki Nakao pointed out a problem in gtfToBed(). In earlier versions the function did a basic reformatting without adjusting the coordinate system between gtf and bed (gtf is 1-based, bed however is 0-based). The function got now the option correctBases=TRUE … Continue reading
