Documented in rna.mattest

#' Array-based t-test
#'
#' Perform two-sample t-test to evaluate differential expression of genes from
#' two experimental conditions or phenotypes
#'
#' @param expr    numeric matrix or data.frame consisting of gene expression values
#' @param ref     numeric vector. Index of reference samples in the array
#' @param samp    numeric vector. Index of case samples in the array
#' @param p.value double or NULL (default). If NULL returns a vector of p-values
#'                for each genes, otherwise returns a logical vecotr of genes with
#'                p-values below the specified threshold.
