This function summarizes the replicate values stored in slot
assayData of a
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.
an object of class
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).
A single value per probe is calculated by summarizing between scored replicates stored in the slot
object. The summary is performed as follows:
summary="mean", the average of replicate values is considered;
summary="median", the median of replicate values is considered;
summary="max", the maximum of replicate intensities is taken;
summary="min", the minimum is considered, instead;
summary="rms", the square root of the mean squared value of the replicates (root mean square) is taken as a summary function;
summary="closestToZero", the value closest to zero is taken as a summary (useful when both sides of the distribution of z-score values are of interest);
summary="furthestFromZero", the value furthest from zero is taken as a summary (useful when both sides of the distribution of z-score values are of interest).
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
