Hi, Is there a simple way to make strand-specific .wig file (i.e., a separate track for + and - strand) from paired-end data (where the second read maps to the other strand)? I've tried using this: library(Rsamtools) library(rtracklayer) myReads <- readGappedAlignments("RNAseqMapping.bam") coveragePlus <- coverage(myReads[strand(myReads) == '+']) export(coveragePlus, "RNAplus.wig") coverageMinus <- coverage(myReads[strand(myReads) == '-']) export(coverageMinus, "RNAminus.wig") But it appears that the second read in the pair contributes to the other strand, generating similar tracks for the + and the - strands. Is there a way to deal with this better? Thanks!
