curveFit: CurveFit data to a Gaussian distribution

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

CurveFit takes a vector of chipdata from microarray slides and fits the data to a Gaussian distribution through a non-linear least-squares optimization algorithm.The results are graphically depicted in a series of histograms. Each histogram represents a different initial seed (left to right: 2 bins, 3 bins, 4 bins, 4.5 bins, 5 bins, and 5.5 bins) that is passed to the curve fitting algorithm. The resulting fit for each histogram is superimposed with a solid blue line.The user is then able to visually select the 'best' fit.

Usage

1
curveFit(chipdata, plot)

Arguments

chipdata

a vector of chipdata from microarray slides.

plot

plot can take values of 1 or 0. If plot is 1 then the histogram with the curve fit will be shown graphically.

Value

an object res which is a list containing the following components. res1]: mean of the computed background. res[2]: standard deviation of the computed background.
