Quality metrics and data processing methods for NanoString mRNA gene expression data

Bioconductor version: 3.8

NanoStringQCPro provides a set of quality metrics that can be used to assess the quality of NanoString mRNA gene expression data -- i.e. to identify outlier probes and outlier samples. It also provides different background subtraction and normalization approaches for this data. It outputs suggestions for flagging samples/probes and an easily sharable html quality control output.
