Fast Gene Set Enrichment Analysis

Bioconductor version: Development (3.8)

The package implements an algorithm for fast gene set enrichment analysis. Using the fast algorithm allows to make more permutations and get more fine grained p-values, which allows to use accurate stantard approaches to multiple hypothesis correction.
