Hi all,
I have been learning to use ChIPpeakAnno package to annotate the peaks I
obtain with CHiPseq experimetns. I see that, useing biomaRt, i can get
to some annotation on ensembl and annotate the peaks according to TSS,
exon, miRNA and some other features.
I would like, also, to be able to search for repetitive elements, such
as ALUs and CpG Islands. Is that kind of information also accessible
using biomaRt? I can't seem to find it. If not how should I proceed?

Thanks in advance
