pathVar: Methods to Find Pathways with Significantly Different Variability

This package contains the functions to find the pathways that have significantly different variability than a reference gene set. It also finds the categories from this pathway that are significant where each category is a cluster of genes. The genes are separated into clusters by their level of variability.
