Hello everyone, I have a list of SNPs in R and a list of regions.

p1.snp <- structure(list(chrom = c("chr1", "chr1", "chr1", "chr1", "chr1", 
"chr1"), position = c(2135809L, 11130112L, 11253473L, 11258963L,

    "21.82%", "40%", "100%"), NA..7 = c("M", "K", "K", "M", "S",

regions <- structure(list(chrom = c("chr1", "chr1", "chr1", "chr1", "chr1", 
"chr1"), chromStart = c(975451L, 1014228L, 1290080L, 1291099L, 
1291742L, 1327977L), chromEnd = c(975952L, 1014729L, 1290581L,

"3'UTR", "3'UTR", "3'UTR", "3'UTR", "3'UTR"), NA..2 = c(0.6187625, 
0.6287425, 0.6786427, 0.7025948, 0.6407186, 0.6766467), NA..3 = c(0.3812375, 
0.3712575, 0.3213573, 0.2974052, 0.3592814, 0.3233533)), row.names = c(NA, 
-6L), class = "data.frame")

I know that I could use some commands in terminal for this purpose ,like bedtools intersect; however I'm looking for a function in R that does the same; I want to have an output in a matrix format reporting if a varinat falls in any of ranges of regions. I would appreciate your help and suggestions

You need to first convert both to a granges object.


p1.snp <- as_granges(p1.snp, seqnames=chrom, start=position, end=position)
regions <- as_granges(regions, seqnames=chrom, start=chromStart, end=chromEnd)

You can then find the overlaps. For this I will use the handy function join_overlap_left from plyranges. It will return a GRanges object of the snps with information from any overlapping regions added to each row.

overlaps <- join_overlap_left(p1.snp, regions)

There are no overlaps in your example data.

You can then turn this back into a data.frame if needed.
