## S3 method for class 'qPCRset'
cbind(..., deparse.level = 1)
## S3 method for class 'qPCRset'
rbind(..., deparse.level = 1)

Arguments

...

qPCRset objects that are to be combined.

deparse.level

not implemented currently. See cbind.

Details

In some cases it might be desirable to merge multiple qPCRset objects, that have been read into R or processed individually. This can be done for either identical samples across multiple different cards (such as a 384 well plate), or if more samples have been run on cards with the same layout.

cbind combines data assuming that all experiments have been carried out on identical cards, i.e. that featureNames, featureType, featurePos and featureClass is identical across all the qPCRset objects. rbind combines data assuming that the same samples have been analysed using different qPCR cards.

For both functions, the getCtHistory of all the individual objects will be added to the combined qPCRset.

Value

A combined qPCRset object.
