kissDE-package: Retrieves condition-specific variants in RNA-seq data

Description Details Note


The kissDE package retrieves condition-specific variants in RNA-seq data. Each variation (SNVs, alternative splicing events) is represented as a pair of variants. The quantification of each variant is summarized as a count, in each condition and each replicate where it was measured. The package tests for enrichment of a variant in a condition. Data counts are modelled using either a poisson or a negative binomial. Likelihood ratio tests are then performed using the GLM (Generalized Linear Model) framework.


Main functions:

diffExpressedVariants(countsData, conditions, pvalue = 1, filterLowCountsVariants = 10, flagLowCountsConditions = 10, technicalReplicates = FALSE)

qualityControl(countsData, conditions, storeFigs = FALSE)

kissplice2counts(fileName, counts = 0, pairedEnd = FALSE, order = NULL, exonicReads = TRUE, k2rg = FALSE, keep = c("All"), remove = NULL)

writeOutputKissDE(resDiffExprVariant, output, adjPvalMax = 1, dPSImin = 0, writePSI = FALSE)


Authors of the package: Clara Benoit-Pilven, Camille Marchet, Janice Kielbassa, Lilia Brinza, Audric Cologne and Vincent Lacroix all contributed code and ideas.
