Figure 1

The workflow of an ngs.plot run. The functional elements in the database are classified based on their types, such as TSS, CGI, enhancer, DHS. The genomic coordinates of the functional elements are used to query a BAM file which is indexed by an R-tree like data structure. Coverage vectors are calculated based on the retrieved alignments, which are further represented as average profiles or heatmaps.
