Turn a multiData structure into a single matrix or data frame.

Description

This function "rbinds" the data components of all sets in the input into a single matrix or data frame.

Usage

1

Arguments

multiData

A multiData structure.

Details

A multiData structure is intended to store (the same type of) data for multiple, possibly independent, realizations (for example, expression data for several independent experiments). It is a list where each component corresponds to an (independent) data set. Each component is in turn a list that can hold various types of information but must have a data component. In a "strict" multiData structure, the data components are required to each be a matrix or a data frame and have the same number of columns. In a "loose" multiData structure, the data components can be anything (but for most purposes should be of comparable type and content).

This function requires a "strict" multiData structure.

Value

A single matrix or data frame containing the "rbinded" result.
