Description

Calculate single study estimates of effect size for lists of ExpressionSets

Usage

1
ssStatistic(statistic = c("t", "sam", "z")[1], phenotypeLabel, esetList, ...)

Arguments

statistic

Character string indicating Welch t-statistic (t), SAM (sam), or a z-statistic (z)

phenotypeLabel

Character string indicating the name of the binary covariate

esetList

An object of class ExpressionSetList

...

Not implemented. Potentially additional arguments to the above methods that are implemented in other packages

Details

This function is a wrapper that provides an estimate of effect size for each study (element) in an ExpressionSetList object.

For Welch t-statistic, this function is a wrapper for mt.teststat in the multtest package.

For SAM, this function is a wrapper for the sam function in the siggenes package.

The "z" statistic is a standardized unbiased estimate of effect size (Hedges and Olkin, 1985) – implementation is in the zScores function in the R package GeneMeta.

See the complete references below.

Value

A matrix: rows are genes and columns are studies
