Compute gene-gene statistics

Description

Computes gene gene statistics.

Usage

1
gene.gene.statistic(g1, g2, paperLens = paperLen())

Arguments

g1

The Entrez Gene identifier for one of the genes.

g2

The Entrez Gene identifier for the other gene.

paperLens

A vector with the number of citations for each paper.

Details

For the two genes identified by their Entrez IDs a number of two-way table statistics, i.e. those computed via twTStats, are returned, as are their gene and paper size adjusted variants.

Value

A list with entries

original

The output of twTStats on the observed data.

gs

The output of twTStats on the data scaled for gene size.

ps

The output of twTStats on the data scaled for paper size.

both

The output of twTStats on the data scaled for both paper and gene size.
