tximport-package: Tximport package: import transcript-level quantification data

Description Details Author(s) References


The tximport package is designed to simplify import of transcript-level abundances (TPM), estimated counts, and effective lengths from a variety of upstream tools, for downstream transcript-level or gene-level analysis. It has no dependencies beyond R, so as to minimize requirements for downstream packages making use of tximport.


The main function has the same name as the package:
