Provides an integrated solution for analysing data from gene expression experiments. limma contains rich features for handling complex experimental designs and for information borrowing to overcome the problem of small sample sizes. It also contains particularly strong facilities for reading, normalizing and exploring such data. Recently, the capabilities of limma have been significantly expanded in two important directions: (i) it can perform both differential expression and differential splicing analyses of RNA-seq data; (ii) the package is now able to go past the traditional gene-wise expression analyses in a variety of ways, analysing expression profiles in terms of co-regulated sets of genes or in terms of higher-order expression signatures. This provides enhanced possibilities for biological interpretation of gene expression differences.
