The ability to efficiently store genomic annotations and alignments is
playing a central role when it comes to analyze high-throughput sequencing
data (a.k.a. NGS data). The package defines general purpose containers for
storing genomic intervals as well as more specialized containers for
storing alignments against a reference genome.
CHANGES IN VERSION 1.6.0
o seqlevels() and seqinfo() setters have a new arg ('force', default is
FALSE) to force dropping sequence levels currently in use.
o Seqinfo objects now have a genome column that can be accessed with
o "pgap" method for c(x="GRanges", y="GRanges").
o Add comparison (==, <=, dupli
