Usage

1
acore(eset,cl,min.acore=0.5)

Arguments

eset

object of the class ExpressionSet.

cl

### Data loaing and pre-processing
 data(yeast) # data set includes 17 measurements
 yeastF <- filter.NA(yeast) 
 yeastF <- fill.NA(yeastF)
 yeastF <- standardise(yeastF)

### Soft clustering and visualisation
cl <- mfuzz(yeastF,c=20,m=1.25)
acore.list <- acore(yeastF,cl=cl,min.acore=0.7)
 }
