#' BRETIGEA: BRain cEll Type specIfic Gene Expression Analysis
#'
#' This package provides two major functions:
#' 1) A function to estimate cell type surrogate proportion variables based on marker genes.
#' 2) A function to adjust bulk gene expression data for estimated cell type proportions, as covariates.
#' It also provides data containing estimated marker genes for six major brain cell types, i.e. astrocytes, endothelial cells, microglia, neurons, oligodendrocytes, and oligodendrocyte precursor cells (OPCs), as well as wrapper functions to use this data on the two major package functions.

#' @title Normalized FPKM expression data from a subset of the Allen Brain Atlas Aging, Dementia, and TBI study.
#' @description Filtered data set to only contain brain marker genes as well as ~100 other genes. The total data set can be downloaded by following the links in the original paper.

#' @title Phenotype data from brain samples in the Allen Brain Atlas Aging, Dementia, and TBI study.
#' @description A subset of phenotype data to be used for correlations with the expression data in the tests and vignette, to validate that the estimated cell type proportions correspond to useful quantities.
