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

RNA-seq data analysis using the Poisson-Tweedie family of distributions

Bioconductor version: Development (3.20)

Differential expression analysis of RNA-seq using the Poisson-Tweedie (PT) family of distributions. PT distributions are described by a mean, a dispersion and a shape parameter and include Poisson and NB distributions, among others, as particular cases. An important feature of this family is that, while the Negative Binomial (NB) distribution only allows a quadratic mean-variance relationship, the PT distributions generalizes this relationship to any orde.
