This package is for version 3.11 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see doppelgangR.

Identify likely duplicate samples from genomic or meta-data

Bioconductor version: 3.11

The main function is doppelgangR(), which takes as minimal input a list of ExpressionSet object, and searches all list pairs for duplicated samples. The search is based on the genomic data (exprs(eset)), phenotype/clinical data (pData(eset)), and "smoking guns" - supposedly unique identifiers found in pData(eset).
