Import the groups from ‘.cls’ files and the expression data from ‘.gct’ files.
Character vector specifying the path of the file to be read in.
Optinal arguments, currently not used.
With these methods the expression data and the assignment of the samples to groups can be read from ‘.cls’ (categorical class) and ‘.gct’ (gene cluster text) files, respectively. Details on the specific formats can be found at http://www.broadinstitute.org/cancer/software/gsea/wiki/index.php/Data_formats.
Please note that the
readCls method reads only categorical class
labels, not continuous ones.
For a ‘.cls’ file, a factor containing the groups.
For a ‘.gct’ file, a matrix containing the expression intensities, with rows corresponding to genes and columns to samples.
