Registration Open for Bioc2024 July 24-26


A fluent interface for manipulating GenomicRanges

Bioconductor version: Release (3.19)

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.
