Build a self-organizing map

Description

Build a SOM based on the data contained in the FlowSOM object

Usage

1
BuildSOM(fsom, colsToUse = NULL, silent = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

fsom

FlowSOM object containing the data, as constructed by the ReadInput function

colsToUse

column names or indices to use for building the SOM

silent

if TRUE, no progress updates will be printed

...

options to pass on to the SOM function (xdim, ydim, rlen, mst, alpha, radius, init, distf, importance)

Value

FlowSOM object containing the SOM result, which can be used as input for the BuildMST function
