About MIRA

The MIRA package aggregates DNA methylation across the genome for instances of a genomic feature like histone ChIP peaks, transcription factor ChIP peaks, or open chromatin regions. MIRA provides a single signature and score for each feature. This lets you use DNA methylation data to infer regulatory activity.
