[…] that the synthetic data mimic real data, since this is not always easy to assess from a text description of a simulation model. we note that it is not the first effort in this direction; the compcoder package () as well as powsim () contain functions for summarizing the characteristics of a single dataset, and the splatter package () also provides the opportunity to generate figures […]

[…] advanced versions for edger and deseq, respectively, and are robust against count outliers such as abnormally high counts (for details, see [, ]). to the best of our knowledge, only one r package, compcoder [], can generate simulation count data with outliers, but it has been restricted to only two-group comparisons so far. extending the simulation framework of compcoder to multi-group data […]
