Description

sva has functionality to estimate and remove artifacts from high dimensional data the sva function can be used to estimate artifacts from microarray data the svaseq function can be used to estimate artifacts from count-based RNA-sequencing (and other sequencing) data. The ComBat function can be used to remove known batch effecs from microarray data. The fsva function can be used to remove batch effects for prediction problems.

This function is the implementation of the iteratively re-weighted least squares approach for estimating surrogate variables. As a by product, this function produces estimates of the probability of being an empirical control. See the function empirical.controls for a direct estimate of the empirical controls.

sva(dat, mod, mod0 = NULL, n.sv = NULL, controls = NULL,
  method = c("irw", "two-step", "supervised"), vfilter = NULL, B = 5,
  numSVmethod = "be")

Arguments

dat

The transformed data matrix with the variables in rows and samples in columns

mod

The model matrix being used to fit the data

mod0

The null model being compared when fitting the data

n.sv

The number of surogate variables to estimate

controls

A vector of probabilities (between 0 and 1, inclusive) that each gene is a control. A value of 1 means the gene is certainly a control and a value of 0 means the gene is certainly not a control.

method

For empirical estimation of control probes use "irw". If control probes are known use "supervised"

vfilter

You may choose to filter to the vfilter most variable rows before performing the analysis. vfilter must be NULL if method is "supervised"

B

The number of iterations of the irwsva algorithm to perform

numSVmethod

If n.sv is NULL, sva will attempt to estimate the number of needed surrogate variables. This should not be adapted by the user unless they are an expert.

Details

A vignette is available by typing browseVignettes("sva") in the R prompt.

Value

sv The estimated surrogate variables, one in each column

pprob.gam: A vector of the posterior probabilities each gene is affected by heterogeneity

pprob.b A vector of the posterior probabilities each gene is affected by mod

n.sv The number of significant surrogate variables
