An R package that provides functions for 1) calculating and 2) visualizing a variety of statistics for a collection of genomic ranges. If you have a set of genomic ranges, such as a BED file the GenomicDistributions R package can help you to explore, annotate, visualize,and compare it.


Main package

With Bioconductor:

if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE))

Or from GitHub:


Data package

GenomicDistributionsData: includes full data files, too large to include in GenomicDistributions

Quick start

See the vignettes for more information:

Building long vignettes

In the long_vignettes are vignettes that require large external data and take a long time to run. Therefore, they should be pre-built. You can render them manually by running long_vignettes/render-long-vignettes.R. This will use knitr to run the vignette and put the result into the vignettes folder, along with output figures.
