Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References

View source: R/geneStabM.R

Description

Computation of the gene expression stability value M for real-time quantitativ RT-PCR data. For more details we refer to Vandesompele et al. (2002).

Usage

1
geneStabM(relData, na.rm = FALSE)

Arguments

relData

matrix or data.frame containing real-time quantitative RT-PCR data

na.rm

a logical value indicating whether NA values should be stripped before the computation proceeds.

Details

The gene expression stability value M is defined as the average pairwise normalization factor; i.e., one needs to specify data from at least two genes. For more details see Vandesompele et al. (2002).

Value

numeric vector with gene expression stability values
