Dear all, I have a similar problem to this poster here: http://grokbase.com/t/r/bioc-devel/141cegqvpf/no-method-for-coercing- this-s4-class-to-a-vector The error message is: Error in as.vector(x) : no method for coercing this S4 class to a vector In my case, however, I'm using the as.data.frame function on a GRanges object. When I source my function it works fine, but when I make it into a package and then run the function I get the S4 class error. The function seems to be from BiocGenerics: > as.data.frame standardGeneric for "as.data.frame" defined from package "BiocGenerics" function (x, row.names = NULL, optional = FALSE, ...) standardGeneric("as.data.frame") <environment: 0x3801ad8=""> Methods may be defined for arguments: x Use showMethods("as.data.frame") for currently available ones. So, I have included this importFrom("BiocGenerics", as.data.frame) in NAMESPACE and this Depends: BiocGenerics in DESCRIPTION. It still does not work. I must be missing something. Any help is highly appreciated!
