Stabilizing the expression variance based on the bead level expression variance and mean relations

1 |

`u` |
mean expression of the beads with same sequence |

`std` |
expression standard deviation of the beads with same sequence |

`nSupport` |
the number of down-sampling to speed processing |

`backgroundStd` |
pre-estimated background standard deviation level |

`fitMethod` |
methods of fitting the relations between expression variance and mean relations |

`lowCutoff` |
cutoff ratio to determine the low expression range. Do not change this until you now what you are doing. |

`ifPlot` |
plot intermediate results or not |

The variance-stabilizing transformation (VST) takes the advantage of larger number of technical replicates available on the Illumina microarray. It models the mean-variance relationship of the within-array technical replicates at the bead level of Illumina microarray. An arcsinh transform is then applied to stabilize the variance. See reference for more details.

For the methods of fitting the relations between expression variance and mean relations, the 'linear' method is more robust and provides detailed parameters for inverseVST.

Return the transformed (variance stabilized) expression values.

## load example data
data(example.lumi)
## get the gene expression mean for one chip
u <- exprs(example.lumi)[,1]
## get the gene standard deviation for one chip
std <- se.exprs(example.lumi)[,1]
## do variance stabilizing transform
transformedU <- vst(u, std)
## do variance stabilizing transform with plotting intermediate result
transformedU <- vst(u, std, ifPlot=TRUE)
