Analysis of Large-Scale Pharmacogenomic Data

Bioconductor version: 3.16

Contains a set of functions to perform large-scale analysis of pharmaco-genomic data. These include the PharmacoSet object for storing the results of pharmacogenomic experiments, as well as a number of functions for computing common summaries of drug-dose response and correlating them with the molecular features in a cancer cell-line.
