mSigTools: Mutational Signature Analysis Tools

Utility functions for mutational signature analysis. This package provides two groups of functions. One is for dealing with mutational signature "exposures" (i.e. the counts of mutations in a sample that are due to each mutational signature). The other group of functions is for matching two sets of mutational signatures. The match minimizes the total distance between paired signatures by using the "Hungarian algorithm" described in : Kuhn, H. W. (1955) <doi:10.1002/nav.3800020109>. 'mSigTools' stands for mutational Signature analysis Tools.
