We contributed to a paper by Sabine Jägle and Andreas Hecht on “Silencing of the EPHB3 tumor suppressor gene in human colorectal cancer through decommissioning of a transcriptional enhancer” published in PNAS. Congrats to Sabine and Andreas!
A preprint of our paper kruX: Matrix-based non-parametric eQTL discovery is available from the arXiv. This paper describes a software tool called kruX for performing millions of non-parametric ANOVA (Kruskal-Wallis) tests at once using matrix-multiplication methods. kruX is about 3 orders of magnitude faster than performing these tests one-by-one, which makes a difference if you want to do billions of them!
