Abstract

The R/Bioconductor package HiTC facilitates the exploration of high-throughtput 3C-based data. It allows users to import and export 'C' data, to transform, normalize, annotate and visualize interaction maps. The package operates within the Bioconductor framework, and thus offers new opportunities for future development in this field.Availability and Implementation: The R package HiTC is available from the Bioconductor web site. A detailed vignette provides additional documentation and help for using the package.
