cfDNAPro Helps Characterise and Visualise Whole Genome Sequencing Data from Liquid Biopsy

Bioconductor version: 3.14

cfDNA fragment size metrics are important features for utilizing liquid biopsy in tumor early detection, diagnosis, therapy personlization and monitoring. Analyzing and visualizing insert size metrics could be time intensive. This package intends to simplify this exploration process, and it offers two sets of functions for data characterization and data visualization.
