tidyestimate

R-CMD-check

The ESTIMATE package has been fundamental for inferring tumor purity from expression data, but its documentation is lacking, and its functions sometimes overstep their bounds while not doing enough. This package is a refresh of ESTIMATE with the goal of maintaining the excellent backbone of the package while increasing its documentation and function scope.

Installation

You can install the released version of tidyestimate from CRAN with:

install.packages("tidyestimate")

And the development version from GitHub with:

# install.packages("devtools")
devtools::install_github("KaiAragaki/tidy_estimate")

Features

| | tidyestimate | ESTIMATE | |-------------:|:----------------------------------------:|:-----------:| | input | data.frametibblematrix | .GCT file | | output | data.frame | .GCT file | | %>%/\|>? | ✔️ | ✖️ | | size | <1MB | \~7MB |

Additionally:

⚡ Faster. tidyestimate doesn’t do any file conversion.

📝 Better documentation. Functions are more clear about input requirements and returns.

🕊️ Lighter. Less code, more readable (less to break, easier to fix).

💪 Robust. tidyestimate does conservative alias matching to allow compatibility with both old and new gene identifiers.

Quickstart

Evaluating tumor purity with tidyestimate is simple. tidyestimate can take a matrix or data.frame (and thus a tibble). In this example, we’ll be using the ov dataset, which is derived from the original estimate package. It’s a matrix with expression data (profiled using an array-based Affymetrix method) for 10 ovarian cancer tumors.

library(tidyestimate)

#> [1] 17256    10

#> MMP2      7.6182  8.0369  8.9551 10.3875  7.4141

Tumor purity can be predicted like so:

scores <- ov |> 
  filter_common_genes(id = "hgnc_symbol", tell_missing = FALSE, find_alias = TRUE) |> 
  estimate_score(is_affymetrix = TRUE)
#> Joining, by = "hgnc_symbol"
#> Joining, by = "hgnc_symbol"
#> 461 of 488 missing genes found matches using aliases.
#> Joining, by = "hgnc_symbol"
#> 
#> Found 10364 of 10391 genes (99.74%) in your dataset.
#> Number of stromal_signature genes in data: 141 (out of 141)
#> Number of immune_signature genes in data: 141 (out of 141)

They can also be plotted in context of the Affymetrix profiled tumors used to generate the ESTIMATE model:

scores |> 
  plot_purity(is_affymetrix = TRUE)

A more detailed version of this example can be found in the vignette of this package.
