# runTtest: Computing Multiple Student Tests In EMA: Easy Microarray Data Analysis

## Description

This function provides a convenient way to compute test statistics, e.g., two-sample Welch t-statistics, t-statistics, paired t-statistics, for each row of a data frame using the multtest package. It returns the raw and adjusted pvalues for each genes as well as the significance of the genes and a quantile-quantile plot.

## Usage

 1 runTtest(data,labels,typeFDR="FDR-BH",algo="t", q=0.05, plot=TRUE)

## Arguments

 data A matrix, a data frame, or an ExpressionSet object. Each row of 'data' (or 'exprs(data)', respectively) must correspond to a gene, and each column to a sample. labels A vector of integers corresponding to observation (column) class labels. For 2 classes, the labels must be 0 and 1. typeFDR The method to apply fo the multiple testing correction. algo A character string specifying the statistic to be used to test the null hypothesis of no association between the variables and the class labels. If 'test="t"', the tests are based on two-sample Welch t-statistics (unequal variances). The number of ddl is computed using the Satterthwaite approximation. If 'test="t.equalvar"', the tests are based on two-sample t-statistics with equal variance for the two samples. The square of the t-statistic is equal to an F-statistic for k=2. If 'test="pairt"', the tests are based on paired t-statistics. The square of the paired t-statistic is equal to a block F-statistic for k=2. q A numeric value specifying the pvalue threshold. plot A logical value specifying if drawing plots or not.

## Value

A matrix with the probes ID, the statistics, the raw p-value and the adjust p-value
