PAM50Classify: 'classify' subjects with PAM50 molecular signature

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References See Also Examples


Obtain PAM50 subtype using genefu centroid Spearman's correlation implementation. If std=="median" probes with the same mapping are averaged. Then, the complete database is center normalized using gene median expression. This is done in order to assure selecting the same "gene" to those in "genefu" library, instead of the most variant probe (default in, when more than one probe match the same gene. This selection is based on probe population variance that could depends on the number of accounted genes.


## S4 method for signature 'PAM50'
classify(object, std = c("none", "scale", "robust",   
    "median")[1], verbose = getOption("verbose", default = FALSE))  



a MolecularPermutationClassifier subclass object.


character to select standardization alternative "none" (default), "scale" and "robust" as in genefu original implementation, plus the suggested "median" if many subjects are available.


should the user feedback be displayed? By default value is "verbose" global option parameter, if present, or FALSE otherwise.


a PAM50 object with the updated slots:


updated matrix with the used std parameter.


subject named factor with all classifier possible levels, i.e, "Basal", "Her2", "LumA", "LumB" and "Normal".


numeric matrix with subtype class probability for each subject, as in genefu, obtained as the positive proportion of correlation explained by each subtype.


numeric matrix with Spearman's rho correlation of each subject to the corresponding PAM50 subtypes.
