SODEGIR_GEstatistics(.Object, ...)

Arguments

.Object

An object of class ExpressionSet containing gene expression input data

...

See below

pData_classColumn:

Column of phenoData slot from the ExpressionSet object, containing the label of sample classes

referenceGroupLabel:

Specify which class label is used for the reference sample used in computing statistics for differential expression.

statisticType:

Stastistic for differential expression that is computed on input data. Possible values are "tstatistic", "FC" (Fold Change), "FCmedian" (fold change computed on medians)

singleSampleOutput:

Logical, if TRUE a statistic comparing each sample with the reference group is computed.

varianceAll:

This parameter affect the computation only when singleSampleOutput is TRUE.

varianceAll is itself a logical parameter. If TRUE, all pathological (e.g. tumor) samples and all normal (reference) samples are used to estimate variance in the comparison of individual pathological samples to the normal reference, as described in the original SODEGIR apper by Bicciato et al. (Nucleic Acids Res. 2009).

The original SODEGIR statistic for Gene Expression was based on the SAM score. However, since July 2018 the samr package is no more available in CRAN. Therefore in the current PREDA version the varianceAll=TRUE parameter can't be used as SAM is not available. When singleSampleOutput is TRUE and a different statisticType is used, the variance is actually computed using only the normal (reference) samples.

If FALSE (default value), the computation of statistics for single sample VS reference comparisons only take into account the variance in the reference group of samples.

Details

Using an ExpressionSet object as input, statistics for differential expression are computed comparing each sample with the reference group.

Value

The output is returned as a matrix.
