Hi,

I have a total of 124 samples (each of them a GRanges objetct) in a list.

transfor[1]
$EPR000148
GRanges object with 57 ranges and 1 metadata column:

  seqinfo: 20 sequences from an unspecified genome; no seqlength

I get the following warning:

Warning message:
In `[<-`(`*tmp*`, i, value = <S4 object of class structure("GRanges", package = "GenomicRanges")>) :
  implicit list embedding of S4 objects is deprecated

Performing the function RaggedExperiment works perfect.

assays(1): score
rownames: NULL
colnames(124): EPR000148 EPR002842 ... EPR985377 EPR990968
colData names(1): id

but when performing any of the Assayfunctions, I get the following:

sparseAssay(ragedtransfor)
Error in as(background, class(mcol)) :

I performed the debug option and it crashes in the following step:

debug: dimnames[[1]] <- as.character(.rowRanges(x))
Browse[2]>
debug: na <- as(background, class(mcol))

Hi Taran, 

Thank you for your report. I wasn't able to get to it yesterday. I will have a look at it today. 

Regards,

Hi Taran, 

Apologies for the late response. I have looked at the issue and we're working on a fix. 
The reason you're getting an error in that call is that you are introducing an "score" column
of type `factor`. 
The quick fix for this issue is to coerce the "score" column to character and rerun the call.

We are currently working on a fix for this. Thanks for reporting this. 

 

Best regards,

Marcel

Updates: This has been fixed in `1.2.3` in release and `1.3.5` in devel.
