I want to load a GFF (annotation) file into an R data frame in order to extract some information from it, e.g. the location of transposons in the genome.
I used the following code:
library(rtracklayer) gff <- rtracklayer::import('c_elegans.PRJNA13758.WS263.annotations.gff3.gz') Error: cannot allocate vector of size 210.2 Mb
It seems that the GFF3 file is too big for loading into R. Do you know if this is limited by R or by my computer's memory?
I ran this on a GNU/Linux computer.
