EScombination.paired: Effect size combination for paired data

Description Usage Arguments Value Note Author(s) References Examples

Description

Calculates effect sizes from paired data either from classical or moderated t-tests (Limma, SMVar) for each study and combines these effect sizes.

Usage

1
EScombination.paired(logratios, moderated = c("limma", "SMVar", "t")[1], BHth = 0.05)

Arguments

logratios

List of matrices (or data frames). Each matrix has one row per gene and one column per replicate and gives the logratios of one study. All studies must have the same genes.

moderated

Method to calculate the test statistic inside each study from which the effect size is computed. moderated has to be chosen between "limma", "SMVar" and "t".

BHth

Benjamini Hochberg threshold. By default, the False Discovery Rate is controlled at 5%.

Value

List

Study1

Vector of indices of differentially expressed genes in study 1. Similar names are given for the other individual studies.

AllIndStudies

Vector of indices of differentially expressed genes found by at least one of the individual studies.

Meta

Vector of indices of differentially expressed genes in the meta-analysis.

TestStatistic

Vector with test statistics for differential expression in the meta-analysis.

Note

While the invisible object resulting from this function contains the values described previously, other quantities of interest are printed: DE,IDD,Loss,IDR,IRR. All these quantities are defined in function IDDIDR and in (Marot et al., 2009)
