Usage

2
  extract_working_sets(first_my_data, replicate_count1,
    replicate_count2)

Arguments

first_my_data

A table to translate. The columns in the table should be as follows:

  • probes — one column containing the names of the probes

  • initial conditions — one or more columns containing the initial conditions of the experiment

  • final conditions — one or more columns containing the final conditions of the experiment

replicate_count1

the number of columns (replicates) corresponding to initial conditions.

replicate_count2

the number of columns (replicates) corresponding to final conditions.

Value

a list containing the following:

  • probes — the set of probes.

  • initial — a data set of replicates corresponding to initial conditions.

  • final — a data set of replicates corresponding to final conditions.
