Sigminer: Mutational Signature Analysis and Visualization in R logo

CRAN status lifecycle R-CMD-check Coverage status Closed issues Lines Of Code HitCount

Overview

The cancer genome is shaped by various mutational processes over its lifetime, stemming from exogenous and cell-intrinsic DNA damage, and error-prone DNA replication, leaving behind characteristic mutational spectra, termed mutational signatures. This package, sigminer, helps users to extract, analyze and visualize signatures from genome alteration records, thus providing new insight into cancer study.

For pipeline tool, please see its co-evolutionary CLI sigflow.

SBS signatures:

Copy number signatures:

DBS signatures:

INDEL (i.e. ID) signatures:

Genome rearrangement signatures:

sig_tally() for RS is not supported.

Feature

Installation

You can install the stable release of sigminer from CRAN with:

install.packages("sigminer", dependencies = TRUE)
# Or
BiocManager::install("sigminer", dependencies = TRUE)

You can install the development version of sigminer from Github with:

remotes::install_github("ShixiangWang/sigminer", dependencies = TRUE)
# For Chinese users, run 
remotes::install_git("https://gitee.com/ShixiangWang/sigminer", dependencies = TRUE)

Usage

A complete documentation of sigminer can be read online at https://shixiangwang.github.io/sigminer-doc/ (For Chinese users, you can also read it at https://shixiangwang.gitee.io/sigminer-doc/). All functions are well organized and documented at https://shixiangwang.github.io/sigminer/reference/index.html (For Chinese users, you can also read it at https://shixiangwang.gitee.io/sigminer/reference/index.html). For usage of a specific function fun, run ?fun in your R console to see its documentation.
