Simulation tool for optimal design of high-dimensional MS-based proteomics experiment

Bioconductor version: 3.17

The packages estimates the variance in the input protein abundance data and simulates data with predefined number of biological replicates based on the variance estimation. It reports the mean predictive accuracy of the classifier and mean protein importance over multiple iterations of the simulation.
