Method to find the cutoff at which gains and losses are considered significant using permutations

1 | ```
findSigLevelTrad(data, observedSpm, n = 1, p = 0.05, maxmem = 1000)
``` |

`data` |
aCGH data in the same format as used for 'calcSpm' |

`observedSpm` |
A sample point matrix as produced by 'calcSpm' |

`n` |
Number of permutations |

`p` |
Alpha level for significance |

`maxmem` |
This parameter controls memory usage, set to lower value to lower memory consumption |

The number of permutations needed for reliable results depends on the data and can not be determined beforehand. As a general rule-of-thumb around 100 permutations should be used for 'quick checks' and around 2000 permutations for more rigorous testing.

p is the uncorrected alpha level, the method corrects for multiple testing internally using simple Bonferroni correction. See the referenced publication for more details.

A list with the cutoffs corresponding to the given alpha level

`pos ` |
The cutoff for the gains |

`neg ` |
The cutoff for the losses' |
