Compute the proportion of negative controls greater than each observed expression value. Particularly useful for Illumina BeadChips.

## S3 method for class 'EListRaw'
detectionPValues(x, status = NULL, ...)
## Default S3 method:
detectionPValues(x, status, negctrl = "negative", ...)

`x` |
object of class |

`status` |
character vector giving probe types. Defaults to |

`negctrl` |
character string identifier for negative control probes. |

`...` |
other arguments are not currently used. |

The rows of `x`

for which `status == negctrl`

are assumed to correspond to negative control probes.

For each column of `x`

, the detection p-values are defined as `(N.eq/2 + N.gt) / N.neg`

, where `N.gt`

is the number of negative controls with expression greater than the observed value, `N.eq`

is the number of negative controls with expression equal to the observed value, and `N.neg`

is the total number of negative controls.

When used on Illumina BeadChip data, this function produces essentially the same detection p-values as returned by Illumina's GenomeStudio software.

numeric matrix of same dimensions as `x`

containing detection p-values.

An overview of LIMMA functions to read expression data is given in 03.ReadingData.

`read.idat`

reads Illumina BeadChip expression data from binary IDAT files.

`neqc`

performs normexp background correction and quantile normalization aided by control probes.
