# padma: Individualized multi-omic pathway deviation scores using multiple factor analysis

The *padma* package can be installed from Bioconductor (devel)
using the *BiocManager* package:
if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE))
# The following initializes usage of Bioc devel
Note that the package can also be installed directly from GitHub:
*padma* uses multiple factor analysis to calculate individualized pathway-centric scores of deviation with respect to the sampled population based on multi-omic assays (e.g., RNA-seq, copy number alterations, methylation, etc). Graphical and numerical outputs are provided to identify highly aberrant individuals for a particular pathway of interest, as well as the gene and omics drivers of aberrant multi-omic profiles.
