Protein Expression Control Analysis (PECA)
This is a paper for all you bioinformatics people out there. Partially because you need to have a stronger background in computer stuff that I do to even install and use PECA.
It appears to be a nice tool for the analysis of RNA expression data and it has the capabilities for also inputting quantitative proteomics data from different formats.
PECA differentiates itself from other software by specifically targeting transcripts or proteins that fall within a steep range but limited range of almost logarithmic increase or decrease.
For more information, check out the abstract at JPR (not open access) here. You can also download the software for compiling and install directly from sourceforge here.
