View source: R/select-features.r

Description

Gene selection based on the statistical significances according to the Snowball approach (see references for more details).

Usage

1
select.features(x, cutoff.p = 0.05, p.adjust.method = "BH")

Arguments

x

an output from the main function snowball

cutoff.p

cutoff for top gene list. This is applied on the multiple testing adjusted p values

p.adjust.method

specifies a multiple testing adjustment method, see p.adjust for more details

Value

a list with two elements - fullList and selectedList.fullLIst is a data.frame that contains rd, pval and positive, corresponding respectively to the RD, p value and an indicator variable of weather the RD value is above or below the median value. selectedList is a data.frame that contains the same variables as those in fullList with only the top genes that satisfy the significance cutoff specified by cutoff.p.
