OUTRIDER: OUTRIDER - OUTlier in RNA-Seq fInDER

Identification of aberrent gene expression in RNA-seq data. Read count expectations are modeled by an autoencoder to control for confounders in the data. Given these expectations, the RNA-seq read counts are assumed to follow a negative binomial distribution with a gene-specific dispersion. Outliers are then identified as read counts that significantly deviate from this distribution. Further OUTRIDER provides useful plotting function to analyze and visualize the results.
