Description

This function summarizes the replicate values stored in slot assayData of a cellHTS object and calculates a single score for each probe. Data are stored in slot assayData overridding its current content.

This function is implemented for single- and multi-channel data.

Usage

1
summarizeReplicates(object, summary ="min")

Arguments

object

an object of class cellHTS that has already been normalized and scored (see details).

summary

a character string indicating how to summarize between replicate measurements. One of "min" (default), "mean", "median", "max", "rms", "closestToZero", or "FurthestFromZero" can be used (see details).

Details

A single value per probe is calculated by summarizing between scored replicates stored in the slot assayData of object. The summary is performed as follows:

Value

The cellHTS object with the summarized scored values stored in slot assayData. This is an object of class assayData corresponding to matrices of dimensions Features x 1 for each channel. Moreover, the processing status of the cellHTS object is updated in the slot state to object@state[["scored"]]= TRUE.
