The RaggedExperiment package provides a flexible data representation for copy number, mutation and other ragged array schema for genomic location data. It aims to provide a framework for a set of samples that have differing numbers of genomic ranges.
RaggedExperiment class derives from a
GRangesList representation and
provides a semblance of a rectangular dataset. The row and column dimensions of
RaggedExperiment correspond to the number of ranges in the entire dataset
and the number of samples represented in the data, respectively.
