Description

The aldex.clr S4 class is a class which stores the data generated by the aldex.clr method.

Details

An aldex.clr object contains the Monte Carlo Dirochlet instances derived from estimating the technical variance of the raw read count data. It is created by the aldex.clr.function, which is invoked by the aldex.clr method. It consists of four attributes: the sample names, the feature names, the conditions vector (assigns each sample to a condition), and the Monte Carlo Dirochlet instances themselves. These can be accessed, along with information about the length of some attributes. A single Monte Carlo instance can also be retrieved.

Value

The aldex.clr object contains the clr transformed values for each Monte-Carlo Dirichlet instance, which can be accessed through getMonteCarloInstances(x), where x is the clr function output. Each list element is named by the sample ID. getFeatures(x) returns the features, getSampleIDs(x) returns sample IDs, and getFeatureNames(x) returns the feature names.

Methods

In the code below, x is an aldex.clr object, and i is a numeric whole number.

getMonteCarloInstances(x): Returns x's Monte Carlo Dirichlet instances.

getSampleIDs(x): Returns the names of the samples. These can be used to access the original reads, as in reads\$sampleID (if the reads are a data frame).

getFeatures(x): Returns the names of the features as a vector.

numFeatures(x): Returns the number of features associated with the data.

numMCInstances(x): Returns the names of the keys that can be used to subset the data rows. The keys values are the rsid's.

getFeatureNames(x): Returns the names of the keys that can be used to subset the data rows. The keys values are the rsid's.

getReads(x): Returns the names of the keys that can be used to subset the data rows. The keys values are the rsid's.

numConditions(x): Returns the names of the keys that can be used to subset the data rows. The keys values are the rsid's.

getMonteCarloReplicate(x, i): Returns the names of the keys that can be used to subset the data rows. The keys values are the rsid's.
