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

Fit a Gamma-Poisson Generalized Linear Model

Bioconductor version: 3.16

Fit linear models to overdispersed count data. The package can estimate the overdispersion and fit repeated models for matrix input. It is designed to handle large input datasets as they typically occur in single cell RNA-seq experiments.
