slideWindowDb - Sliding window approach towards filtering sequences in a
slideWindowDb determines whether each input sequence in a
contains equal to or more than a given number of mutations in a given length of
consecutive nucleotides (a “window”) when compared to their respective germline
slideWindowDb( db, sequenceColumn = "SEQUENCE_IMGT", germlineColumn = "GERMLINE_IMGT_D_MASK", mutThresh, windowSize )
data.framecontaining sequence data.
- name of the column containing IMGT-gapped sample sequences.
- name of the column containing IMGT-gapped germline sequences.

a logical vector. The length of the vector matches the number of input sequences in
db. Each entry in the vector indicates whether the corresponding input sequence
should be filtered based on the given parameters.
