Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References Examples
Methods for Present/Absent Calls are meant to provide means of assessing whether or not each of the (PM) intensities are compatible with observations generated by background probes.

## S4 method for signature 'ExonFeatureSet'
paCalls(object, method, verbose = TRUE)
## S4 method for signature 'GeneFeatureSet'
paCalls(object, method, verbose = TRUE)
## S4 method for signature 'ExpressionFeatureSet'
paCalls(object, method, ..., verbose = TRUE)

object 
Exon/Gene/ExpressionFeatureSet object. 
method 
String defining what method to use. See 'Details'. 
... 
Additional arguments passed to MAS5. See 'Details' 
verbose 
Logical flag for verbosity. 
For Whole Transcript arrays (Exon/Gene) the valid options for
method
are 'DABG' (pvalues for each probe) and 'PSDABG'
(pvalues for each probeset). For Expression arrays, the only option
currently available for method
is 'MAS5'.
ABOUT MAS5 CALLS:
The additional arguments that can be passed to MAS5 are:
alpha1
: a significance threshold in (0, alpha2);
alpha2
: a significance threshold in (alpha1, 0.5);
tau
: a small positive constant;
ignore.saturated
: if TRUE, do the saturation correction described in
the paper, with a saturation level of 46000;
This function performs the hypothesis test:
H0: median(Ri) = tau, corresponding to absence of transcript H1: median(Ri) > tau, corresponding to presence of transcript
where Ri = (PMi  MMi) / (PMi + MMi) for each i a probepair in the probeset represented by data.
The pvalue that is returned estimates the usual quantity:
Pr(observing a more "present looking" probeset than data  data is absent)
So that small pvalues imply presence while large ones imply absence of transcript. The detection call is computed by thresholding the pvalue as in:
call "P" if pvalue < alpha1 call "M" if alpha1 <= pvalue < alpha2 call "A" if alpha2 <= pvalue
A matrix (of dimension dim(PM) if method="DABG" or "MAS5"; of dimension length(unique(probeNames(object))) x ncol(object) if method="PSDABG") with pvalues for P/A Calls.
