I suspect that there is some issue with converting vectors between different
formats and the identifiers of your probes (the 'featureNames' of the
The actual way to obtain those intensities with version 1.8.0 should be
Please let me know if this does not give the expected results.
However, I admit that providing indices as a character vector for the probes
slot was not necessary and rather misleading. Thus I have made slight changes
to the function and provided an additional method 'probes' which allows you to
obtain a character vector of probe names from each ChIP-enriched region
without having to access any slots directly.
These changes can be found in the current development version 1.9.15, which
you can obtain from the Bioconductor repository tomorrow, and will also be in
the new release version (Ringo 1.10.0) at the end of this month.
With the new version, the following is the preferred way for obtaining the values:
Hope this helps.
