DSS – Dispersion Shrinkage for Sequencing

Gene expression is a stochastic process so biological replicates in the same treatment group do not share identical expression levels. The presence of biological variation leads to the “over-dispersion” problem, e.g. the read counts show variation greater than expected from ...
