Download Drug Perturbation Signatures

Share:

Description

This function allows you to download an array of drug perturbation signatures, as would be computed by the drugPerturbationSig function, for the available perturbation PharmacoSets. This function allows the user to skip these very lengthy calculation steps for the datasets available, and start their analysis from the already computed signatures
