This is the development version of decompTumor2Sig; for the stable release version, see decompTumor2Sig.

Decomposition of individual tumors into mutational signatures by signature refitting

Bioconductor version: Development (3.18)

Uses quadratic programming for signature refitting, i.e., to decompose the mutation catalog from an individual tumor sample into a set of given mutational signatures (either Alexandrov-model signatures or Shiraishi-model signatures), computing weights that reflect the contributions of the signatures to the mutation load of the tumor.
