Description

Test the equality of concentration matrices in two experimental conditions for all cliques of a pathway

Usage

1
clique.var.test(y1,y2,dag,alpha)

Arguments

y1

a matrix with n1 individuals (rows) in the first experimental condition and p genes (columns).

y2

a matrix with n2 individuals (rows) in the second experimental condition and p genes (columns). The genes in the two experimental conditions must be the same.

dag

graphNEL object, a directed acyclic graph (DAG) corresponding to the pathway of interest. See package gRbase for more details.

alpha

significance level of the test.

Details

The function tests the equality of the concentration matrices of each clique of a pathway in two experimental conditions. The graph of a pathway is first converted into a DAG, then the moral graph is obtained and if the latter graph is decomposable then the test is performed on all its cliques. If the moral graph is not decomposable, its triangulated version is obtained and then the test is performed on all its cliques.

The expression data may contain some genes differing from those in the pathway: in such case the function automatically takes the intersection between the two gene sets.

This function requires gRBase and qpgraph packages.

Value

p.value

the observed value of the significance level.

cliques

the list of cliques where the test is performed.

var.equal

logical, a vector with a TRUE for a significant clique and a FALSE otherwise.

lambda.var

the observed value of the statistic.

graph

the triangulated and moral graphs.
