In this tutorial (, it appears that rtracklayer should be able to handle BigBed ("...includes functionality for parsing file formats associated the UCSC Genome Browser such as BED, Wig, BigBed and BigWig").

However, as of the latest update v1.42.1, rtracklayer lacks of support for BigBed. I wonder if this is true, and if there is any plan to implement this format in the near future?

No, there is no support for BigBed, nor is any planned. But we'd be open to contributions.
