- Scott, D. W., Chan, F. C., Hong, F., Rogic, S., Tan, K. L., Meissner, B., et al. (2013). Gene expression-based model using formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded biopsies predicts overall survival in advanced-stage classical Hodgkin lymphoma. J Clin Oncol, 31(6), 692–700. doi:10.1200/JCO.2012.43.4589
The preferred way to install this package is through conda:
conda install -c fongchun chl26predictor
Alternatively, one can install this package, using devtools:
This package suggests the installation of the NanoStringNorm R package for access to some additional (but non-essential) functions (e.g.
convert_RCC_to_mat). You can install NanoStringNorm from CRAN using:
Newer versions of NanoStringNorm (at least from v1.1.21 onwards), depend on the
vsn Bioconductor R package. As NanoStringNorm is not part of Bioconductor, you will need to install this dependency yourself:

A quick overview of some of the key functions:
convert_RCC_to_mat: Converts the RCC files in a directory into a matrix.
get_normalizer: Returns the normalizer values for each sample.
An introduction vignette has been written to describe how to use the R package.
