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

Import and summarize transcript-level estimates for transcript- and gene-level analysis

Bioconductor version: 3.8

Imports transcript-level abundance, estimated counts and transcript lengths, and summarizes into matrices for use with downstream gene-level analysis packages. Average transcript length, weighted by sample-specific transcript abundance estimates, is provided as a matrix which can be used as an offset for different expression of gene-level counts.
