This is the development version of DSS; for the stable release version, see DSS.

Dispersion shrinakge for sequencing data.

Bioconductor version: Development (3.0)

DSS is an R library performing differntial analysis for count-based sequencing data. It detectes differentially expressed genes (DEGs) from RNA-seq, and differentially methylated loci or regions (DML/DMRs) from bisulfite sequencing (BS-seq). The core of DSS is a new dispersion shrinkage method for estimating the dispersion parameter from Gamma-Poisson or Beta-Binomial distributions.
