DBGSA package provides a new method to evaluate the possiblities of the enrichment between different phenotypes. DBGSA is a novel distance-based gene set enrichment analysis method. We consider that, the distance between 2 groups with different phenotype by focusing on the gene expression should be larger, if a certain gene functional set was significantly associated with a particular phenotype.
