Annotation-agnostic differential expression analysis of RNA-seq data at base-pair resolution via the DER Finder approach

Bioconductor version: 3.4

This package provides functions for annotation-agnostic differential expression analysis of RNA-seq data. Two implementations of the DER Finder approach are included in this package: (1) single base-level F-statistics and (2) DER identification at the expressed regions-level. The DER Finder approach can also be used to identify differentially bounded ChIP-seq peaks.
