[][src]Crate perbase_lib

A library of funcionality for perbase analysis of genomic regions.

This library is a work in progress and subject to changes as needed by perbase.

Currently, the key module of this crate is the par_granges module, which allows for parallel iteration and operation over genomic intervals.

The position module provides data-structures and methods for accumulating position related information.

// `process_region`. The returned `P` objects will be kept in order and accessible on the
