An R package for normalizing RNA-seq data to make them comparable to microarray data for use with machine learning.
In order to include this package in your R code, you only need to do the following:
Alternatively, if you have latex installed, you can build the vignette:
devtools::install_github("greenelab/TDM", build_vignettes = TRUE)
A copy of the compiled vignette is also include in this repository.

How should the RNA-seq input data be prepared?
TDM expects RNA-seq count data by default. In the tutorial, the reason the counts are not discrete values is that they are expected counts from RSEM. This is also fine to use. We have not tested TDM with RPKM or other normalized values.
Can I use TPM corrected values with TDM?
Unfortunately, this is unlikely to work well. We assumed raw or RSEM counts with the TDM approach.
