This README would normally document whatever steps are necessary to get your application up and running.

What is this repository for?

  • Software (R scripts) and instructions that implement the methods of
  • "Modeling bias and variation in the stochastic processes of small RNA sequencing"
  • 1.0
  • Learn Markdown

How do I get set up?

  • Any standard version of R (including Microsoft R open) may be used to run the code
  • Dependencies: execution of the software depends on the GAMLSS R package (, the TMB R package and the R development tools for your operating system and R version
  • If you would like to use the methods of our paper clone the folder BaseCode locally
  • If you would like to reproduce the results of our paper, clone the folder NAR locally
  • Compilation of C++ code to execute the TMB analyses IS required. We provide DLLs for a specific platform (64bit Win10) and 3.3.x versions of R, but these may not work under 32-bit versions or even earlier versions of R (and they most definitely will not work for non-Windows platforms)

Who do I talk to?
