A matrix or data frame of count data. The count data is representative of the number of reads annotated for a feature (be it gene, OTU, species, etc). Rows should correspond to features and columns to samples.

phenoData

An AnnotatedDataFrame with pertinent sample information.

featureData

An AnnotatedDataFrame with pertinent feature information.

libSize
