Steve and Ivan mention GRanges + BSgenome. I wanted to mention 
Rsamtools::FaFile with indexFa, which allows input of DNA sequence from 
fasta files rather than BSgenome packages. You gain flexibility in terms 
of where the sequence comes from, but lose BSgenome features like 
masking and data management.
