RNA-seq analysis using multiple algorithms

Bioconductor version: 3.17

This package allows users to perform DE analysis using multiple algorithms. It seeks consensus from multiple methods. Currently it supports "Voom", "EdgeR" and "DESeq". It uses RUV-seq (optional) to remove unwanted sources of variation.
