RLE: Relative Log Expression (RLE)

Description Arguments Details Author(s) See Also Examples

Description

Produce boxplots of Relative Log Expression (RLE) values for the set of arrays. Alternatively, summary statistics or RLE values can be extracted as data.frame.

Usage

RLE(x, treename = "*", type = c("plot", "stats", "values"), qualopt = NULL, ...)

Arguments

x

object of class QualTreeSet.

treename

vector of tree names to export.

type

type of output, plot, stats or values.

qualopt

quality control option, i.e. ‘raw’, ‘adjusted’, ‘normalized’ or ‘all’.

...

optional arguments to be passed to rleplot.

Details

Create boxplots of Relative Log Expression (RLE) values for the set of arrays, i.e. of M plots, where M is determined relative to a pseudo-median reference chip.

Alternatively it is possible to extract either the summary statistics as data.frame (type="stats") or all RLE values as data.frame (type="values").

If an object of class QualTreeSet was created by fitting a probe level model with qualopt="all" then RLE will plot or extract RLE for "all" quality options. If you want to plot or extract RLE for a certain quality option only, e.g. "normalized" data only, then you can use parameter qualopt with qualopt="<qualopt>".
