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
contrasts.fit of the
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
contrasts.fit limma's function to do the linear
model fit without use the empirical Bayes method given by the function
The result of this function is an object of class
