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

A suite of functions to facilitate zFPKM transformations

Bioconductor version: Development (3.8)

Perform the zFPKM transform on RNA-seq FPKM data. This algorithm is based on the publication by Hart et al., 2013 (Pubmed ID 24215113). Reference recommends using zFPKM > -3 to select expressed genes. Validated with encode open/closed chromosome data. Works well for gene level data using FPKM or TPM. Does not appear to calibrate well for transcript level data.
