This package is for version 3.17 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see bugsigdbr.

R-side access to published microbial signatures from BugSigDB

Bioconductor version: 3.17

The bugsigdbr package implements convenient access to bugsigdb.org from within R/Bioconductor. The goal of the package is to facilitate import of BugSigDB data into R/Bioconductor, provide utilities for extracting microbe signatures, and enable export of the extracted signatures to plain text files in standard file formats such as GMT.
