fga.func(aCGH.obj, thres = 0.25, factor = 2.5, 
         samplenames = sample.names(aCGH.obj), 
         chrominfo = human.chrom.info.Jul03)

Arguments

aCGH.obj

An object of aCGH class

thres

either a vector providing unique threshold for each sample or a vector of the same length as number of samples providing sample-specific threshold. If 'aCGH.obj' has non-null 'sd.samples', then threshold is automatically replaced by tumor-specific sd multiplied by 'factor'. Clone is considered to be gained if it is above the threshold and lost if it is below negative threshold. Defaults to 0.25

factor

specifies the number by which experimental variability should be multiples. Used only when tumor specific variability in 'aCGH.obj' is not NULL or when factor is greater than 0. Defaults to 2.5.

samplenames

Sample names. Default is sample.names(aCGH.obj)

chrominfo

A chromosomal information associated with the mapping of the data. Default is human.chrom.info.Jul03 data frame

Value

gainP

Vector of proportion of genome gained for each sample

lossP

Vector of proportion of genome lost for each sample
