Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References

Based on a list of gene sets, e.g. pathways, in terms Affymtrix identifiers, these sets are ranked with respect to regulation as measured by an effect in a linear model using the SAM statistic. Typical applications include two-group comparisons or simple linear regression to clinical variable or gene expression of a given gene.

`samroc` |
an object of class samroc.result |

`probeset` |
the Affymetrix identifiers |

`pway` |
a list of pathways or gene sets |

`type` |
if "absolute" value of the absolute value of the samroc test statistic is used. If "original" no transformation. "maxmean" not available. |

`two.side` |
if TRUE a two-sided test is performed. Currently only two-sided test when type = "original" and else one-sided |

`cutoff` |
Gene sets with the number of members not falling within the interval given by |

`restand` |
if TRUE a 'restandardization' following Efron and Tibshirani (2006) is performed |

Restandardization based on Efron and Tibshirani (2006) introduced. For normal approximation of the gene set statistic both the mean of the statstic, or the variance (and likewise for the Wilcoxon statistic), are obtained from the permutation distribution included in the samroc.result object. Note that this will account for the dependency between genes.

A matrix with columns normal approximation p-values, mean statistic, median statistic, and if type = "original", also Wilcoxon signed ranks statistic based p-value.
