Dispersion shrinakge for sequencing data.

Bioconductor version: Release (2.11)

DSS is an R library performing the differential expression analysis for RNA-seq count data. DSS implements a new dispersion shrinkage method to estimate the gene-specific biological variance. Extensive simulation results showed that DSS performs favorabily compared to DESeq and edgeR when the variation of biological variances is large.
