BioQC: Detect tissue heterogeneity in gene expression data

BioQC is a R/Bioconductor package to detect tissue heterogeneity in gene expression data. To this end BioQC implements a computationally efficient Wilcoxon-Mann-Whitney test and provides more than 150 signatures of tissue-enriched genes derived from large-scale transcriptomics studies.

Simulation studies show that BioQC is both fast and sensitive in detecting tissue heterogeneity.

Usage

The usage is documented on our website or in the following two vignettes:

Case studies

There are case-studies available on our website or in the BioQC-example github repository.
