## S4 method for signature 'CuffSet'
getSig(object,x,y,alpha=0.05,level='genes',method="BH", useCuffMTC=FALSE)

Arguments

object

A CuffSet object (e.g. cuff)

x

Optional argument to restrict significance results to one pairwise comparison. Must be used with a 'y' argument to specificy the other half of the pair.

y

See x.

alpha

An alpha value by which to filter multiple-testing corrected q-values to determine significance

level

Feature level to be queried for significance (must be one of c('genes','isoforms','TSS','CDS')

method

Multiple testing method to be used for correction. (default: "BH")

useCuffMTC

Logical vector whether or not to use the multiple-testing corrected q-values from the cuffdiff analysis directly, or calculate new q-values from a subset of tests.

Details

This is a convenience function to quickly retrieve vectors of identifiers for genes or features that were determined to be significantly regulated between conditions by cuffdiff. This function only returns tracking IDs that correspond to tests with an 'OK' status from cuffdiff, NOTEST values are ignored. By default getSig returns a vector of IDs for all pairwise comparisons together. If you specify an 'x' AND 'y' values as sample names, then only the features that are significant in that particular pairwise comparison are reported, after appropriate multiple testing correction of output p-values.

Value

A vector of feature IDs.

Note

None.
