Fast and efficient summarization of generic bedGraph files from Bisufite sequencing

Bioconductor version: Development (3.18)

Bedgraph files generated by Bisulfite pipelines often come in various flavors. Critical downstream step requires summarization of these files into methylation/coverage matrices. This step of data aggregation is done by Methrix, including many other useful downstream functions.
