Testing Groups of Covariates/Features for Association with a Response Variable, with Applications to Gene Set Testing



GPL (>= 2)




biotools: globaltest

The global test tests groups of covariates (or features) for association with a response variable. This package implements the test with diagnostic plots and multiple testing utilities, along with several functions to facilitate the use of this test for gene set testing of GO and KEGG terms.

You need a conda-compatible package manager (currently either micromamba, mamba, or conda) and the Bioconda channel already activated (see set-up-channels).

While any of above package managers is fine, it is currently recommended to use either micromamba or mamba (see here for installation instructions). We will show all commands using mamba below, but the arguments are the same for the two others.

Given that you already have a conda environment in which you want to have this package, install with:

   mamba install bioconductor-globaltest

and update with::

   mamba update bioconductor-globaltest

To create a new environment, run:

mamba create --name myenvname bioconductor-globaltest

with myenvname being a reasonable name for the environment (see e.g. the mamba docs for details and further options).

Alternatively, use the docker container:

   docker pull<tag>

(see `bioconductor-globaltest/tags`_ for valid values for ``<tag>``)
