This package is for version 3.8 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see miRSM.

Inferring miRNA sponge modules by integrating expression data and miRNA-target binding information

Bioconductor version: 3.8

The package aims to identify miRNA sponge modules by integrating expression data and miRNA-target binding information. It provides several functions to study miRNA sponge modules, including popular methods for inferring gene modules (candidate miRNA sponge modules), and a function to identify miRNA sponge modules, as well as a function to conduct functional analysis of miRNA sponge modules.
