genius: Function to compute the Gene Expression progNostic Index...

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

This function computes the Gene Expression progNostic Index Using Subtypes (GENIUS) as published by Haibe-Kains et al. 2010. Subtype-specific risk scores are computed for each subtype signature separately and an overall risk score is computed by combining these scores with the posterior probability to belong to each of the breast cancer molecular subtypes.

Usage

1
genius(data, annot, do.mapping = FALSE, mapping, do.scale = TRUE)

Arguments

data

Matrix of gene expressions with samples in rows and probes in columns, dimnames being properly defined.

annot

Matrix of annotations with at least one column named "EntrezGene.ID", dimnames being properly defined.

do.mapping

TRUE if the mapping through Entrez Gene ids must be performed (in case of ambiguities, the most variant probe is kept for each gene), FALSE otherwise.

mapping

Matrix with columns "EntrezGene.ID" and "probe" used to force the mapping such that the probes are not selected based on their variance.

do.scale

TRUE if the ESR1, ERBB2 and AURKA (module) scores must be rescaled (see rescale), FALSE otherwise.

Value

GENIUSM1

Risk score from the ER-/HER2- subtype signature in GENIUS model.

GENIUSM2

Risk score from the HER2+ subtype signature in GENIUS model.

GENIUSM3

Risk score from the ER+/HER2- subtype signature in GENIUS model.

score

Overall risk prediction as computed by the GENIUS model.

## load NKI dataset
data(nkis)
## compute GENIUS risk scores based on GENIUS model fitted on VDX dataset
genius.nkis <- genius(data=data.nkis, annot=annot.nkis, do.mapping=TRUE)
str(genius.nkis)
## the performance of GENIUS overall risk score predictions are not optimal
## since only part of the NKI dataset was used
