This package is for version 3.17 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see HiCExperiment.

Bioconductor class for interacting with Hi-C files in R

Bioconductor version: 3.17

R generic interface to Hi-C contact matrices in `.(m)cool`, `.hic` or HiC-Pro derived formats, as well as other Hi-C processed file formats. Contact matrices can be partially parsed using a random access method, allowing a memory-efficient representation of Hi-C data in R. The `HiCExperiment` class stores the Hi-C contacts parsed from local contact matrix files. `HiCExperiment` instances can be further investigated in R using the `HiContacts` analysis package.
