recount: Explore and download data from the recount project
Version 1.2.1

Explore and download data from the recount project available at https://jhubiostatistics.shinyapps.io/recount/. Using the recount package you can download RangedSummarizedExperiment objects at the gene, exon or exon-exon junctions level, the raw counts, the phenotype metadata used, the urls to the sample coverage bigWig files or the mean coverage bigWig file for a particular study. The RangedSummarizedExperiment objects can be used by different packages for performing differential expression analysis. Using http://bioconductor.org/packages/derfinder you can perform annotation-agnostic differential expression analyses with the data from the recount project as described at http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2016/08/08/068478.
