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

Empirical RNA-seq Sample Size Analysis

Bioconductor version: Development (3.18)

The ERSSA package takes user supplied RNA-seq differential expression dataset and calculates the number of differentially expressed genes at varying biological replicate levels. This allows the user to determine, without relying on any a priori assumptions, whether sufficient differential detection has been acheived with their RNA-seq dataset.
