DaMiRseq-an R/Bioconductor package for data mining of RNA-Seq data: normalization, feature selection and classification

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Summary: RNA-Seq is becoming the technique of choice for high-throughput transcriptome profiling, which, besides class comparison for differential expression, promises to be an effective and powerful tool for biomarker discovery. However, a systematic analysis of high-dimensional genomic data is a demanding task for such a purpose. DaMiRseq offers an organized, flexible and convenient framework to remove noise and bias, select the most informative features and perform accurate classification.

Availability and Implementation: DaMiRseq is developed for the R environment (R > = 3.4) and is released under GPL ( > = 2) License. The package runs on Windows, Linux and Macintosh operating systems and is freely available to non-commercial users at the Bioconductor open-source, open-development software project repository (https://bioconductor.org/packages/DaMiRseq/). In compliance with Bioconductor standards, the authors ensure stable package maintenance through software and documentation updates.
