Normalizes a set of columns representing read counts from different samples by their mean. Then calculates a statistic across the rows of normalized counts.

1 | ```
generateBackground(sample.names, rdata, fn=median)
``` |

`sample.names` |
A vector of column names in rdata to be used as background samples |

`rdata` |
A RangedData object containing the read counts |

`fn` |
The statistic to be applied across the rows of normalized counts. Defaults to median, but the standard deviation can also be calculated in this way. |

The value of fn applied across the rows of normalized read counts.

1 2 3 4 5 6 | ```
data(exomecounts)
sample.names <- grep("HG.+",colnames(exomecounts),value=TRUE)
exomecounts[["bg"]] <- generateBackground(sample.names, exomecounts,
median)
exomecounts[["bg.sd"]] <- generateBackground(sample.names,
exomecounts, sd)
``` |
