0.1 Overview

OncoScore is a tool to measure the association of genes to cancer based on citation frequency in biomedical literature. The score is evaluated from PubMed literature by dynamically updatable web queries.

The R version of OncoScore can be installed from Github. To do so, we need to install the R packages OncoScore depends on and the devtools package.
