Welcome to the new bioconductor.org!


This is the development version of diffUTR; for the stable release version, see diffUTR.

diffUTR: Streamlining differential exon and 3' UTR usage

Bioconductor version: Development (3.19)

The diffUTR package provides a uniform interface and plotting functions for limma/edgeR/DEXSeq -powered differential bin/exon usage. It includes in addition an improved version of the limma::diffSplice method. Most importantly, diffUTR further extends the application of these frameworks to differential UTR usage analysis using poly-A site databases.
