Controlling bias and inflation in association studies using the empirical null distribution


Info: This package contains files in non-standard labels.

conda install

  • linux-64  v1.16.0
  • osx-64  v1.16.0
To install this package with conda run one of the following:
conda install -c bioconda bioconductor-bacon
conda install -c bioconda/label/gcc7 bioconductor-bacon
conda install -c bioconda/label/cf201901 bioconductor-bacon


Bacon can be used to remove inflation and bias often observed in epigenome- and transcriptome-wide association studies. To this end bacon constructs an empirical null distribution using a Gibbs Sampling algorithm by fitting a three-component normal mixture on z-scores.
