CRAN status R-CMD-check

The goal of sGBJ is to provide an extension of the Generalized Berk-Jones test for set-based inference in genomics studies with a censored time-to-event outcome. In particular, it is geared towards

This packages implements an extension of the GBJ statistic for censored time-to-event data. It computes the sGBJ statistic and its p-value for testing the association between a gene set and a time-to-event outcome with possible adjustment on additional covariates.

The main function of the package is sGBJ()

The methods implemented in this package are detailed in the following article:
