YARN: Robust Multi-Condition RNA-Seq Preprocessing and Normalization

Bioconductor version: 3.8

Expedite large RNA-Seq analyses using a combination of previously developed tools. YARN is meant to make it easier for the user in performing basic mis-annotation quality control, filtering, and condition-aware normalization. YARN leverages many Bioconductor tools and statistical techniques to account for the large heterogeneity and sparsity found in very large RNA-seq experiments.
