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

A fluent interface for manipulating GenomicRanges

Bioconductor version: 3.17

A dplyr-like interface for interacting with the common Bioconductor classes Ranges and GenomicRanges. By providing a grammatical and consistent way of manipulating these classes their accessiblity for new Bioconductor users is hopefully increased.
