Re: [R] [BioC] similarity between two gene lists with varied length

Hi Weiwei,

You may want to have a look at the Bioconductor package OrderedList. It searches for similarities in gene rankings without forcing the user to specify a threshold, where to cut the lists.

Hope this helps,
Cheers,
Claudio

Dear listers,

a little off-topic:

I am looking for and compare algorithms which can calculate "distance" or "similarity" between two gene lists with different lengths.

Any paper, any implementation in R and any suggestion is welcome!

Thanks,
