## S3 method for class 'PairedPSCBS'
estimateDeltaCN(fit, scale=1, flavor=c("1-kappa", "delta(mode)"),
  kappa=estimateKappa(fit), adjust=0.2, quantile=0.95, ...)

Arguments

scale

A numeric scale factor in (0,Inf) used for rescaling (multiplying) the final estimate with.

flavor

Specifies which type of estimator should be used.

kappa

Estimate of background signal (used by the "1-kappa" method).

adjust, quantile

Tuning parameters (used by the "delta(mode)" method).

...

Not used.

Details

For parent-specific copy-number (PSCN) data, the TCN unit length is estimated as (1-kappa)/2, where kappa is estimated from data (by estimateKappa).

For total copy-number (TCN) data (only),

Value

Returns a positive scalar numeric.
