DGEobj.utils: A toolkit facilitating a limma/voom workflow Differential Gene Expression analysis

This package implements a set of utility functions to enable a limma/voom workflow capturing the results in the DGEobj data structure. Aside from implementing a well developed and popular workflow in DGEobj format, the run* functions in the package illustrate how to wrap the individual processing steps in a workflow in functions that capture important metadata, processing parameters, and intermediate data items in the DGEobj data structure. This function- based approach to utilizing the DGEobj data structure insures consistency among a collection of projects processed by these methods and thus facilitates downstream automated meta-analysis.

Functionality includes:
