# Estimate the confidence interval for the proportions predicted by deconvolution

### Description

A function is used to estimate the the confidence interval for the proportions predicted by deconvolution through bootstrapping.

### Usage

1 | ```
decon.bootstrap(data.set, possible.signatures, n.sig, n.iter)
``` |

### Arguments

`data.set` |
the data object for mixing samples |

`possible.signatures` |
a data frame providing the expression values from pure tissue samples |

`n.sig` |
the number of genes/transcripts used for estimation of proportions from our deconvolution |

`n.iter` |
the number of bootstraps for our deconvolution |

### Value

A three dimentional array to store means and 95% confidence interval
