contrastsFitM: Compute Contrasts from Linear Model Fit

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) See Also


Given a linear model fit to microarray data, compute estimated coefficients and standard errors for a given set of contrasts. This function was adapted from of the limma package.





an MArrayLM object or a list object produced by the function lm.series or equivalent.


numeric matrix with row corresponding to coefficients in fit and columns containing contrasts. May be a vector if there is only one contrast.


This function was adapted from the equivalent limma's function to do the linear model fit without use the empirical Bayes method given by the function eBayes.


The result of this function is an object of class MArrayLM.


Gustavo H. Esteves <>, adapted from the limma's function.
