Compare Characteristic Features of Count Data Sets

Bioconductor version: 3.16

countsimQC provides functionality to create a comprehensive report comparing a broad range of characteristics across a collection of count matrices. One important use case is the comparison of one or more synthetic count matrices to a real count matrix, possibly the one underlying the simulations. However, any collection of count matrices can be compared.
