Package to Perform High Throughput Biological Screening

Bioconductor version: Release (3.18)

ScreenR is a package suitable to perform hit identification in loss of function High Throughput Biological Screenings performed using barcoded shRNA-based libraries. ScreenR combines the computing power of software such as edgeR with the simplicity of use of the Tidyverse metapackage. ScreenR executes a pipeline able to find candidate hits from barcode counts, and integrates a wide range of visualization modes for each step of the analysis.
