Description

Estimate the number of significant genes in the FDR table using user specified cutoff.

Usage

1
sig.number(fdr.table,FDR=0.05,qt=-1)

Arguments

fdr.table

a table containing the estimated FDR for each gene

FDR

the false discovery cutoff, the default is 0.05

qt

a vector of quantiles for which FDR is estimated by averaging over B times of number of false genes. If qt=0.25 (0.5, 0.75, 0.9), FDR is estimated by 25% (50%, 75%, 90%) quantiles of false genes over B times.Default is -1, which means all genes are used.

Value

The function returns a number showing the number of significant genes at specified FDR cutoff.
