OrderedList--a bioconductor package for detecting similarity in ordered gene lists

Bioinformatics. 2006 Sep 15;22(18):2315-6. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btl385. Epub 2006 Jul 14.


OrderedList is a Bioconductor compliant package for meta-analysis based on ordered gene lists like those resulting from differential gene expression analysis. Our package quantifies the similarity between gene lists. The significance of the similarity score is estimated from random scores computed on perturbed data. OrderedList illustrates list similarity in intuitive plots and determines the score-driving genes for further analysis.
