BiasCorrector is published in 'BiasCorrector: fast and accurate correction of all types of experimental biases in quantitative DNA methylation data derived by different technologies' (2021) in the International Journal of Cancer (DOI: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/ijc.33681).

BiasCorrector is the user friendly implementation of the algorithms described by Moskalev et. al in their research article 'Correction of PCR-bias in quantitative DNA methylation studies by means of cubic polynomial regression', published 2011 in Nucleic acids research, Oxford University Press (DOI: https://doi.org/10.1093/nar/gkr213).

Type the URL "localhost:3838/" in your browser and start working with BiasCorrector.

rBiasCorrection

BiasCorrector depends on the rBiasCorrection R-package, which is the implementation of the core functionality to correct measurement biases in DNA methylation analyses. BiasCorrector brings this functionality to a user-friendly shiny web application. rBiasCorrection is available at https://github.com/kapsner/rBiasCorrection.

Video Tutorial

A video tutorial describing the workflow of how to use BiasCorrector in order to correct measurement bias in DNA methylation data is available on youtube.

Demo Version

A demo version of BiasCorrector is available here.
