#' Single-gene classifiers and outlier-resistant detection of differential expression 
#' for two-group and survival problems.
#'
#' Messina is a collection of algorithms for constructing optimally robust
#' single-gene classifiers, and for identifying differential expression in
#' the presence of outliers or unknown sample subgroups.  The methods have
#' application in identifying lead features to develop into clinical 
#' tests (both diagnostic and prognostic), and in identifying differential
#' expression when a fraction of samples show unusual patterns of expression.
