Advances in RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) technologies that measure the transcriptome of biological samples have revolutionised our ability to understand transcriptional regulatory programs that underpin diseases such as cancer. We recently published singscore - a single sample, rank-based gene set scoring method which quantifies how concordant the transcriptional profile of individual samples are relative to specific gene sets of interest. Here we demonstrate the application of singscore to investigate transcriptional profiles associated with specific mutations or genetic lesions in acute myeloid leukemia. Using matched genomic and transcriptomic data available through the TCGA we show that scor..
