hi Yu Chuan, 

I wrote two convenience functions, countBamInGRanges and getGCcontent, for the 
exomeCopy package for these tasks.  You can take a look at the first part of th
e vignette here:

I have some questions about DNA-Seq and RNA-Seq analyses. In Amplicon
sequencing, is there any package/function which can extract amplicon-level
read counts and GC content  from an aligned file of BAM format? The same
question to exon-level read counts and GC content. More generally, given a
genomic interval, how could I extract the read count and GC content for
that interval?

Thanks for any input!

Yu Chuan
