Function to compute the risk scores of the tamoxifen resistance signature (TAMR13)

Description

This function computes signature scores from gene expression values following the algorithm used for the Tamoxifen Resistance signature (TAMR13).

Usage

1
tamr13(data, annot, do.mapping = FALSE, mapping, verbose = FALSE)

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.

verbose

TRUE to print informative messages, FALSE otherwise.

Value

score

Continuous signature scores

risk

Binary risk classification, 1 being high risk and 0 being low risk (not implemented, the function will return NA values).
