Extract a table of the topranked CpGs from a linear model fit after
performing a differential methylation analysis using RUVfit
.

fit 
An object containing a linear model fit produced by 
number 
integer, maximum number of genes to list. Default is 10. 
p.value.cut 
numeric, cutoff value for adjusted pvalues. Only features with lower pvalues are listed. Must ve between 0 and 1. Default is 1. 
cut.on 
numeric, the type of adjusted pvalue that the cutoff should be applied to.
Default is 
sort.by 
character string, the type of adjusted pvalue that should be used for sorting.
Default is 
This function summarises the results of a differential methylation analysis
performed using RUVfit
, followed by RUVadj
. The top ranked CpGs
are selected by first ranking the adjusted pvalues (Default: p.ebayes.BH
),
then ranking the raw pvalues (Default: p.ebayes
).
Produces a dataframe with rows corresponding to the top number
CpGs and
the following columns:
coefficients 
The estimated coefficients of the factor(s) of interest. 
sigma2 
Estimates of the features' variances. 
t 
t statistics for the factor(s) of interest. 
p 
Pvalues for the factor(s) of interest. 
multiplier 
The constant by which 
df 
The number of residual degrees of freedom. 
W 
The estimated unwanted factors. 
alpha 
The estimated coefficients of W. 
byx 
The coefficients in a regression of Y on X (after both Y and X have been "adjusted" for Z). Useful for projection plots. 
bwx 
The coefficients in a regression of W on X (after X has been "adjusted" for Z). Useful for projection plots.

The following columns may or may not be present depending on the options
selected when RUVadj
was run:
p.rsvar 
Pvalues, after applying the method of rescaled variances. 
p.evar 
Pvalues, after applying the method of empirical variances. 
p.ebayes 
Pvalues, after applying the empirical bayes method of Smyth (2004). 
p.rsvar.ebayes 
Pvalues, after applying the empirical bayes method of Smyth (2004) and the method of rescaled variances. 
p.BH 
Pvalues adjusted for false discovery rate (FDR) using the method of Benjamini and Hochberg (1995). 
p.rsvar.BH 
FDRadjusted pvalues, after applying the method of rescaled variances. 
p.evar.BH 
FDRadjusted pvalues, after applying the method of empirical variances. 
p.ebayes.BH 
FDRadjusted pvalues, after applying the empirical bayes method of Smyth (2004). 
p.rsvar.ebayes.BH 
FDRadjusted pvalues, after applying the empirical bayes method of Smyth (2004) and the method of rescaled variances.
