selectContrib: Select contributing features/genes

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) Examples

Description

This function selects elements whose absolute scaled values exceed a given threshold.

Usage

1
  selectContrib(object, cutoff, level, ...)

Arguments

object

Either an IcaSet object, or a list of projection vectors, e.g the list of feature or gene projections on each component.

cutoff

The threshold according to which the elements will be selected. Must be either of length 1 and the same treshold is applied to all components, or of length equal to the number of components in order to use a specific threshold for each component.

level

The level of the selection: either "genes" to select contributing genes using SByGene(icaSet), or "features" to select contributing features using S(icaSet).

...

...

Details

Each vector is first scaled and then only elements with an absolute scaled value higher than cutoff are kept.

Value

A list of projections restricted to the elements that are higher than cutoff.
