Normalization Methods

Description

Collection of Different Normalization Methods.

Usage

normalization(Xtrain,Xtest=NULL, method = "pqn",ref=NULL)

Arguments

Xtrain

a matrix of data (training data set).

Xtest

a matrix of data (test data set).(by default = NULL).

method

the normalization method to be used. Choices are "none", "pqn", "sum", "median", "sqrt" (by default = "pqn"). A partial string sufficient to uniquely identify the choice is permitted.

ref

Reference sample for Probabilistic Quotient Normalization. (by default = NULL).

Details

A number of different normalization methods are provided:

  • "none": no normalization method is applied.

  • "pqn": the Probabilistic Quotient Normalization is computed as described in Dieterle, et al. (2006).

  • "sum": samples are normalized to the sum of the absolute value of all variables for a given sample.

  • "median": samples are normalized to the median value of all variables for a given sample.

  • "sqrt": samples are normalized to the root of the sum of the squared value of all variables for a given sample.

Value

The function returns a list with 2 items or 4 items (if a test data set is present):

newXtrain

a normalized matrix (training data set).

coeXtrain

a vector of normalization coefficient of the training data set.

newXtest

a normalized matrix (test data set).

coeXtest

a vector of normalization coefficient of the test data set.
