rankInverseNormalDataFrame: rank-based inverse normal transformation of the data

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) Examples

View source: R/rankInverseNormalDataFrame.R

Description

This function takes a data frame and a reference control population to return a z-transformed data set conditioned to the reference population. Each sample data for each feature column in the data frame is conditionally z-transformed using a rank-based inverse normal transformation, based on the rank of the sample in the reference frame.

	rankInverseNormalDataFrame(variableList,
	                           data,
	                           referenceframe,
	                           strata=NA)

Arguments

variableList

A data frame with two columns. The first one must have the names of the candidate variables and the other one the description of such variables

data

A data frame where all variables are stored in different columns

referenceframe

A data frame similar to data, but with only the control population

strata

The name of the column in data that stores the variable that will be used to stratify the model

Value

A data frame where each observation has been conditionally z-transformed, given control data
