intrinsic.cluster: Function to fit a Single Sample Predictor (SSP) as in Perou,...

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


This function fits the Single Sample Predictor (SSP) as published in Sorlie et al 2003, Hu et al 2006 and Parker et al 2009. This model is actually a nearest centroid classifier where the centroids representing the breast cancer molecular subtypes are identified through hierarchical clustering using an "intrinsic gene list".


intrinsic.cluster(data, annot, do.mapping = FALSE, mapping,
  std = c("none", "scale", "robust"), rescale.q = 0.05, intrinsicg,
  number.cluster = 3, mins = 5, method.cor = c("spearman", "pearson"),
  method.centroids = c("mean", "median", "tukey"), filen, verbose = FALSE)



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


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


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.


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


Standardization of gene expressions: scale for traditional standardization based on mean and standard deviation, robust for standardization based on the 0.025 and 0.975 quantiles, none to keep gene expressions unchanged.


Proportion of expected outliers for (robust) rescaling the gene expressions.


Intrinsic gene lists. May be specified by the user as a matrix wit hat least 2 columns named probe and EntrezGene.ID for the probe names and the corresponding Entrez Gene ids. The intrinsic gene lists published by Sorlie et al. 2003, Hu et al. 2006 and Parker et al. 2009 are stored in ssp2003, ssp2006 and pam50 respectively.


The number of main clusters to be identified by hierarchical clustering.


The minimum number of samples to be in a main cluster.


Correlation coefficient used to identified the nearest centroid. May be spearman or pearson.


LMethod to compute a centroid from gene expressions of a cluster of samples: mean, median or tukey (Tukey's Biweight Robust Mean).


Name of the csv file where the subtype clustering model must be stored.


TRUE to print informative messages, FALSE otherwise.



Single Sample Predictor


Subtypes identified by the SSP. For published intrinsic gene lists, subtypes can be either "Basal", "Her2", "LumA", "LumB" or "Normal".


Probabilities to belong to each subtype estimated from the correlations to each centroid.


Correlation coefficient to each centroid.
