Arguments

multiExpr

Expression (or other numeric) data in a multi-set format. A vector of lists; in each list there must be a component named ‘data’ whose content is a matrix or dataframe or array of dimension 2.

moduleLabels

Module labels: one label for each gene in multiExpr.

multiEigengenes

Optional eigengenes of modules specified in moduleLabels. If not given, will be calculated from multiExpr.

signed

logical: should the network be considered signed? In signed networks (TRUE), negative kME values are not considered significant and the corresponding p-values will be one-sided. In unsigned networks (FALSE), negative kME values are considered significant and the corresponding p-values will be two-sided.

useModules

Optional specification of module labels to which the analysis should be restricted. This could be useful if there are many modules, most of which are not interesting. Note that the "grey" module cannot be used with useModules.

consensusQuantile

Quantile for the consensus calculation. Should be a number between 0 (minimum) and 1.

metaAnalysisWeights

Optional specification of meta-analysis weights for each input set. If given, must be a numeric vector of length equal the number of input data sets (i.e., length(multiExpr)). These weights will be used in addition to constant weights and weights proportional to number of samples (observations) in each set.

corAndPvalueFnc

Function that calculates associations between expression profiles and eigengenes. See details.

corOptions

List giving additional arguments to function corAndPvalueFnc. See details.

corComponent

Name of the component of output of corAndPvalueFnc that contains the actual correlation.

getQvalues

logical: should q-values (estimates of FDR) be calculated?

useRankPvalue

Logical: should the rankPvalue function be used to obtain alternative meta-analysis statistics?

rankPvalueOptions

Additional options for function rankPvalue. These include na.last (default "keep"), ties.method (default "average"), calculateQvalue (default copied from input getQvalues), and pValueMethod (default "scale"). See the help file for rankPvalue for full details.

setNames

names for the input sets. If not given, will be taken from names(multiExpr). If those are NULL as well, the names will be "Set_1", "Set_2", ....

excludeGrey

logical: should the grey module be excluded from the kME tables? Since the grey module is typically not a real module, it makes little sense to report kME values for it.

greyLabel

label that labels the grey module.

Details

The function corAndPvalueFnc is currently is expected to accept arguments x (gene expression profiles), y (eigengene expression profiles), and alternative with possibilities at least "greater", "two.sided". Any additional arguments can be passed via corOptions.

The function corAndPvalueFnc should return a list which at the least contains (1) a matrix of associations of genes and eigengenes (this component should have the name given by corComponent), and (2) a matrix of the corresponding p-values, named "p" or "p.value". Other components are optional but for full functionality should include (3) nObs giving the number of observations for each association (which is the number of samples less number of missing data - this can in principle vary from association to association), and (4) Z giving a Z static for each observation. If these are missing, nObs is calculated in the main function, and calculations using the Z statistic are skipped.
