Rank Product method for identifying differentially expressed genes with application in meta-analysis

Bioconductor version: Release (2.14)

Non-parametric method for identifying differentially expressed (up- or down- regulated) genes based on the estimated percentage of false predictions (pfp). The method can combine data sets from different origins (meta-analysis) to increase the power of the identification.
