Description

Given a subclass of LinearMParams, compute p-values for detecting systematic up or downregulation of the specified gene set in the specified category.

Usage

1

Arguments

p

An instance of a subclass of LinearMParams. This parameter object determines the category of interest (currently, only chromosome bands) as well as the gene set.

Details

The per-gene statistics in the geneStats slot of p give a measure of up or down regulation of the individual genes in the universe.

Value

A LinearMResult instance.
