Description

Calls gains and losses.

Usage

1
2
## S3 method for class 'CBS'
callGainsAndLosses(fit, adjust=1, method=c("ucsf-mad", "ucsf-dmad"), ..., verbose=FALSE)

Arguments

adjust

A positive scale factor adjusting the sensitivity of the caller, where a value less (greater) than 1.0 makes the caller less (more) sensitive.

method

A character string specifying the calling algorithm to use.

...

Additional/optional arguments used to override the default parameters used by the caller.

Value

Returns a CBS object where logical columns 'lossCall' and 'gainCall' have been appended to the segmentation table.

The UCSF caller

If method == "ucsf-mad", then segments are called using [1], i.e. a segment is called gained or lost if its segment level is at least two standard deviations away from the median segment level on Chr1-22, where standard deviation is estimated using MAD. Then same is done for method == "ucsf-dmad" with the difference that the standard deviation is estimated using a robust first order variance estimator.
