Welcome to the new bioconductor.org!


Utilities to compute, compare, and plot the agreement between ordered vectors of features (ie. distinct genomic experiments). The package includes Correspondence-At-the-TOP (CAT) analysis.

Bioconductor version: Release (3.18)

The matchBox package enables comparing ranked vectors of features, merging multiple datasets, removing redundant features, using CAT-plots and Venn diagrams, and computing statistical significance.
