Cross platform normalization of microarray and RNA seq data for machine learning applications

PMCID: 4736986
PMID: 26844019
DOI: 10.7717/peerj.1621

[…] ta (). The distribution of expression values for each condition in the simulated data is shown with violin plots (), which display an appreciable level of variability both within and between classes. Quantro is a recently developed method for generating an F-score that represents the ratio of the within class variability to between class variability in the data () and is available as a package for […]
