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

Client for the Reactome Analysis Service for comparative multi-omics gene set analysis

Bioconductor version: 3.16

The ReactomeGSA packages uses Reactome's online analysis service to perform a multi-omics gene set analysis. The main advantage of this package is, that the retrieved results can be visualized using REACTOME's powerful webapplication. Since Reactome's analysis service also uses R to perfrom the actual gene set analysis you will get similar results when using the same packages (such as limma and edgeR) locally. Therefore, if you only require a gene set analysis, different packages are more suited.
