Many statistical problems in bioinformatics and genetics can be formulated as the testing of associations between a categorical variable and a continuous variable. dslice is an R package to facilitate the use of dynamic slicing method in bioinformatic applications such as quantitative trait loci (QTLs) study and gene set enrichment analysis.
