depthTools: Depth Tools Package
depthTools is a package that implements different
statistical tools for the description and analysis of gene
expression data based on the concept of data depth, namely, the
scale curves for visualizing the dispersion of one or various
groups of samples (e.g. types of tumors), a rank test to decide
whether two groups of samples come from a single distribution
and two methods of supervised classification techniques, the DS
and TAD methods. All these techniques are based on the Modified
Band Depth, which is a recent notion of depth with a low
computational cost, what renders it very appropriate for high
dimensional data such as gene expression data.
