This function reads in data from multiple qPCR experiments from the one batch.
Each text file in the batch must meet the structure required by
Note: In order to qualify as a batch, it is assumed that the same set of primers are being analyzed in each experiment.
Filenames separated by a comma.
Character vector specifying file names.
Logical value, TRUE if the file contains the names of the variables as its first line.
Logical value, TRUE if a QC filter
If the function is called with no arguments
readQpcrBatch() all the files in the working directory are
read and put into a
All files must conform to the following structure:
1st column = names denoting genes or primer pairs
2nd column = plate index of each gene or primer pair
remaining columns = (replicate) Ct values
Note: the majority of arguments to readQpcr are identical to those supplied to read.table. These have been included to
give the user greater control over data input, should the data deviate from a standard tab-delimited file structure.
For a set of standard tab-delimited text files (without column headers), specifying the
filenames should be sufficient.
