Examples

data(srdta)
snp.names(srdta, begin = 50000, end = 100000)
snp.names(srdta, begin = 50000, end = 100000, chromosome = "1")

# does not make sense with these data:
snp.names(srdta, begin = 50000, end = 100000, chromosome = "X") 

# again makes sense: 
snp.names(srdta, end = 100000)
snp.names(srdta, begin = 2200000)

# show summary for SNPs in region between 50,000 and 100,000
a <- snp.names(srdta, begin = 50000, end = 100000)
summary(srdta@gtdata[,a])
