Rxivist combines preprints from bioRxiv with data from Twitter to help you find the papers being discussed in your field. Currently indexing 71,071 bioRxiv papers from 310,086 authors.
Unbiased assays such as shotgun proteomics and RNA-seq provide high-resolution molecular characterization of tumors. These assays measure molecules with highly varied distributions, making interpretation and hypothesis testing challenging. Samples with the most extreme measurements for a molecule can reveal the most interesting biological insights, yet are often excluded from analysis. Furthermore, rare disease subtypes are, by definition, underrepresented in cancer cohorts. To provide a strategy for identifying molecules aberrantly enriched in small sample cohorts, we present BlackSheep--a package for non-parametric description and differential analysis of genome-wide data, available at <https://github.com/ruggleslab/blackSheep>. BlackSheep is a complementary tool to other differential expression analysis methods that may be underpowered when analyzing small subgroups in a larger cohort.
