This package is for version 3.16 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see MBttest.

Multiple Beta t-Tests

Bioconductor version: 3.16

MBttest method was developed from beta t-test method of Baggerly et al(2003). Compared to baySeq (Hard castle and Kelly 2010), DESeq (Anders and Huber 2010) and exact test (Robinson and Smyth 2007, 2008) and the GLM of McCarthy et al(2012), MBttest is of high work efficiency,that is, it has high power, high conservativeness of FDR estimation and high stability. MBttest is suit- able to transcriptomic data, tag data, SAGE data (count data) from small samples or a few replicate libraries. It can be used to identify genes, mRNA isoforms or tags differentially expressed between two conditions.
