Description

Identify the number of differentially methylated cases.

Usage

1
calculateNbDiffCase(nbCase, propDiff, propDiffSd)

Arguments

nbCase

a positive integer, the number of cases.

propDiff

a double superior to 0 and inferior or equal to 1, the mean value for the proportion of samples that will have, for a specific position, differentially methylated values. It can be interpreted as the penetrance.

propDiffSd

a non-negative double, the standard deviation associated to the propDiff

Value

a integer, the number of differentially methylated cases.
