A little late after the fact, I just noticed the "new" tileGenome function in GenomicRange - very nice. Thank you! I'll start using this now instead of a much slower function I'd written myself.
I sometimes find myself looking at overlapping sliding windows with my slow function, rather than the non-overlapping tiles that tileGenome produces. Would it be possible to add that option to the function? I'd like to specify window size and slide amount. In a slightly ridiculous toy example, I might want 100bp windows with a slide of 20bp on a 150bp chromosome, so the windows would be at these positions:
What do you think - would this be easy for you guys to do?
thanks very much,
