Loads an example GRN object with 6 TFs, ~61.000 peaks, ~19.000 genes, 259 filtered connections and pre-calculated enrichments. This function uses BiocFileCache if installed to cache the example object, which is considerably faster than re-downloading the file anew every time the function is executed. If not, the file is re-downloaded every time anew. Thus, to enable caching, you may install the package BiocFileCache.

  forceDownload = FALSE,
  fileURL = "https://git.embl.de/grp-zaugg/GRaNIE/-/raw/master/data/GRN.rds"



TRUE or FALSE. Default FALSE. Should the download be enforced even if the local cached file is already present?


Character. Default https://git.embl.de/grp-zaugg/GRaNIE/-/raw/master/data/GRN.rds. URL to the GRN example object in rds format.
