Description

The function demisummary returns the mean normalized expression levels for the specified targets. It returns the mean expression values for the whole dataset as well as for individual groups. Depending on the analysis parameter of the underlying DEMIExperiment object the target can be ensembl gene ID or gene symbol (e.g. 'MAOB'), ensembl transcript ID, ensembl peptide ID or genomic region ID.

demisummary(object, target)

## S4 method for signature 'DEMIDiff'
demisummary(object, target)

## S4 method for signature 'DEMIExperiment'
demisummary(object, target)

Arguments

object

A DEMIExperiment, DEMIDiff object.

target

A vector. Depending on the analysis the target can be ensembl gene ID or gene symbol (e.g. 'MAOB'), ensembl transcript ID, ensembl peptide ID or genomic region ID.

Details

To see available targets used in the analysis you can try head(getAnnotation(x)) where x is an object of class DEMIExperiment. Alternatively you could use head(getAnnotation(getExperiment(y))) where y is of class DEMIDiff.

If no results have been attached to the DEMIExperiment object then it only returns the mean normalized expression values for the whole dataset not for individual groups. To attach results to DEMIExperiment object use the function attachResult(x,y) where x is an object of class DEMIExperiment and y is an object of class DEMIDiff that stores the results.

Value

Returns the mean normalized expression levels of the specified targets.
