`object` |
an object of class |

`Effmethod` |
a character vector defining the methods for computing amplification efficiency. |

`group` |
a vector containing the grouping for possible replicates. |

`model` |
the model to be used for all runs. Default model is |

`check` |
the method for kinetic outlier detection in |

`checkPAR` |
parameters to be supplied to the |

`remove` |
indicates which runs to be removed. Either |

`exclude` |
indicates samples to be excluded from calculation, either "" for samples with missing column names or a regular expression defining columns (samples);
see 'Details' and 'Examples' in |

`type` |
the point on the amplification curve which is used for efficiency estimation; see |

`labels` |
a vector containing labels which define replicate groups. See more details in |

`norm` |
a logical value which determines whether the raw data should be normalized within [0, 1] before model fitting or not. |

`baseline` |
type of baseline subtraction. More details in |

`basefac` |
a factor when using averaged baseline cycles, such as |

`smooth` |
the curve smoothing method. See more details in |

`smoothPAR` |
parameters to be supplied to smoothing method in |

`factor` |
a multiplication factor for the fluorescence response values. |

`opt` |
a logical value which determines whether model selection should be applied to each model or not. |

`optPAR` |
parameters to be supplied for model selection in |

`plot` |
a logical value. If |

`verbose` |
a logical value. If |

`...` |
other parameters to be passed to downstream methods. |

Allows the user to compute Cq value and amplification efficiency. In addition, all values generated during the computations are saved. This function has four choices of methods for computing amplification efficiency values which are the methods provided by package qpcR.

More details on technical replication and normalization is given in the vignette `NormqPCR`

## Compute Cq values
## 1) use sigmoidal model

se.effs(res1)
## 2) fit exponential model (default)
res2 <- CqValues(cycData1, Effmethod = "expfit")

effs(res2)
se.effs(res2)
## 3) use window of linearity
res3 <- CqValues(cycData1, Effmethod = "sliwin")
res3
effs(res3)
se.effs(res3)
## 4) linear regression of efficiency
res4 <- CqValues(cycData1, Effmethod = "LRE")
