Description

The 'counts' function extract a certian assay element from XBSeqDataSet object. The normalized assay element can be extracted by specifying 'normalized = TRUE'.

Usage

## S4 method for signature 'XBSeqDataSet'
counts(object,slot = 3, normalized = FALSE)

Arguments

object

a XBSeqDataSet

slot

a integer value to specify which assay element to extract (default to 3)

normalized

whether the normalized assay element should be returned

Details

counts is a function to access an array elemen which is specified by the end user. The difference between this function and the counts function for DESeqDataSet is that this function can be used to access a specific array elememt rather than a pre-defined array element "counts" in the case of DESeqDataSet. By default, the first array element contains information of observed signal. The second array element contains information of background noise. The third array element contains information of estimated true signal after calling the function estimateRealCount.

Value

Either normalized or un-normalized assay element
