FisherExactTest: Method "FisherExactTest"

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/FETFramework.R

Description

The main function of the Fisher Exact Test framework. Creates n times 2 matrices with record counts, where n rows represent dependent variable levels and two columns represent genotype levels. Performs Fisher Exact Tests on calculated count matrices.

Three matrices can be created and three tests can be potentially perform depending on the dataset:

- all records together regardless the sex values - combined dataset,

- records where sex value is "Male" (if such exists) - males only dataset,

- records where sex value is "Female" (if such exists) - females only dataset.

Together with count matrices creates percentage matrices, calculates effect sizes and statistics for count matrices. Performs Fisher Exact Tests.

The results (matrices, statistics and Fisher Exact Test outputs) are stored in PhenTestResult object.

The funciton is called from "testDataset" function when "method" argument is set to "FE" meaning "Fisher Exact Test".

Usage

depVariable

a character string defining the dependent variable of interest; mandatory argument

outputMessages

flag: "FALSE" value to suppress output messages; "TRUE" value to show output messages; default value TRUE

Value

Returns results stored in instance of the PhenTestResult class
