cepa.all.parallel(dif = NULL, bk = NULL, mat = NULL, label = NULL,
    pc, cen = default.centralities,
    cen.name = sapply(cen, function(x) ifelse(mode(x) == "name", deparse(x), x)),
    nlevel = "tvalue_abs", plevel = "mean", iter = 1000, ncores = 2)

Arguments

dif

differential gene list

bk

background gene list. If background gene list are not specified, use whole human genes

mat

expression matrix in which rows are genes and columns are samples

label

a sampleLabel object identify the design of the microarray experiment

pc

a pathway.catalogue object storing information of pathways

cen

centrality measuments, it can ce a string, or a function

cen.name

centrality measurement names. By default it is parsed from cen argument

nlevel

node level transformation, should be one of "tvalue", "tvalue_sq", "tvalue_abs". Also self-defined functions are allowed, see cepa.univariate.all for detail.

plevel

pathway level transformation, should be one of "max", "min", "median", "sum", "mean", "rank". Also, self-defined functions are allowed, see cepa.univariate.all for detail.

iter

number of simulations

ncores

number of cores for parallel computing

Details

The function divides the pathway list into several parts and each part is sent to a core for parallel computing.

The package for parallel computing is snow.

Note: there may be warnings saying connections not closed. In fact I have closed connections after the parallel computing is done. I don't know why this happens. Maybe you breaked the computing ahead manually. However it does not matter unless you have obsessive compulsive disorder.

Value

A cepa.all class object
