Value

copyNumber returns a matrix of copy number estimates or relative copy number estimates. Since the copy number estimates are stored as integers (copy number * 100), the matrix returned by the copyNumber accessor will need to be divided by a factor of 100 to transform the measurements back to the original copy number scale.

cnConfidence returns a matrix of confidence scores for the copy number estimates. These are also represented as integers and will require a back-transformation to the original scale.

	## the following command creates an 'oligoSnpSet' object, storing

	## confidence scores for the genotypes are also represented on an integer scale
	ipr <- snpCallProbability(oligoSet)
	range(ipr) ## integer scale

	## for genotype confidence scores, the helper function i2p
	## converts back to a probability scale
	pr <- i2p(ipr)
	range(pr)

	## The helper function confs is a shortcut, extracting the
	## integer-based confidence scores and transforming to the
	## probability scale
	pr2 <- confs(oligoSet)
	all.equal(pr, pr2)

	## To extract information on the annotation of the SNPs, one can use
	position(oligoSet)
	chromosome(oligoSet)
	## the position and chromosome coordinates were extracted from build hg19
	genomeBuild(oligoSet)
