This function computes the phylogenetically based transcriptome age index (TAI) introduced by Domazet-Loso & Tautz, 2010.
a standard PhyloExpressionSet object.
The TAI measure represents the weighted arithmetic mean (expression levels as weights for the phylostratum value) over all evolutionary age categories denoted as phylostra.
TAI_s = ∑ (e_is * ps_i) / ∑ e_is
where TAI_s denotes the TAI value in developmental stage s, e_is denotes the gene expression level of gene i in stage s, and ps_i denotes the corresponding phylostratum of gene i, i = 1,...,N and N = total number of genes.
Internally the function calls the C++ function
cpp_TAI to speed up TAI computations.
a numeric vector containing the TAI values for all given developmental stages.
