Registration Open for Bioc2024 July 24-26


Collection of functions for reading and comparing SAGE libraries

Bioconductor version: Release (3.19)

This package implements several functions useful for analysis of gene expression data by sequencing tags as done in SAGE (Serial Analysis of Gene Expressen) data, i.e. extraction of a SAGE library from sequence files, sequence error correction, library comparison. Sequencing error correction is implementing using an Expectation Maximization Algorithm based on a Mixture Model of tag counts.
