Defines functions MetaboliteANOVA

Documented in MetaboliteANOVA

#'@title MetaboliteANOVA
#'\code{MetaboliteANOVA} will perform an ANOVA on columns of a data matrix according to a specified model.
#'Function is a wrapper for \code{lm} including some sanity checks. It will accept a data matrix (traits in columns), sample information (data.frame) and a potential model as input, compute an ANOVA per column and return the respective P-values in a named matrix for further plotting or export.
#'@param dat Data  matrix (e.g. of metabolite).
#'@param sam Sample table (same number of row as 'dat' and containing all columns specified in 'model'.
#'@param model ANOVA model. May include +, * and : together with column names of sam (cf. Examples).
#'@param method The method to be used in column wise multiple testing adjustment, see \code{\link{p.adjust}}.
#'@param silent Logical. Shall the function print warnings to the console?
#'A named matrix of P-values (rows=metabolites/traits; cols=ANOVA factors).
#'# load raw data and sample description
#'utils::data(raw, package = "MetabolomicsBasics")
#'utils::data(sam, package = "MetabolomicsBasics")
