targeting_motiv {BCellMA}R Documentation

Function to calculate the difference at three positions before and after a mutation to identify the hotspot motifs

Description

The change around the mutated nucleotide flanking three bases each is expressed as the difference (

Usage

targeting_motiv(data)

Arguments

data

Output from the function hotspotmutMat().

Value

Output is a list of four mutation environments A, C, T and G with the difference (
