Arguments

switchAnalyzeRlist

A switchAnalyzeRlist object.

extractGenes

A logic indicating whether to extract the (top) switching isoforms (if FALSE) or top switching genes (if TRUE). Default is TRUE (extract genes).

filterForConsequences

A logical indicating whether to filter for genes with functional consequences. Requires that analyzeSwitchConsequences() have been run on the switchAnalyzeRlist. Default is FALSE.

alpha

The cutoff which the FDR correct p-values must be smaller than for calling significant switches. Default is 0.05.

dIFcutoff

The cutoff which the changes in (absolute) isoform usage must be larger than before an isoform is considered switching. This cutoff can remove cases where isoforms with (very) low dIF values are deemed significant and thereby included in the downstream analysis. This cutoff is analogous to having a cutoff on log2 fold change in a normal differential expression analysis of genes to ensure the genes have a certain effect size. Default is 0.1 (10%).

n

The number of switching features (genes/isoforms) to return. Use Inf to return all significant results (NA will internally be converted to Inf for backward comparability). Default is 10.

inEachComparison

A logic indicating whether to extract top n in each comparison (if TRUE) or from the all analysis (if FALSE). Default is FALSE.

sortByQvals

A logic indicating whether to the top n features are defined be smallest q-values (if sortByQvals=TURE) or the largest changes in isoform usage (absolute dIF) which are still significant (if sortByQvals=FALSE). The dIF values for genes are considered as the total change within the gene calculated as sum(abs(dIF)) for each gene. If set to NA no sorting is performed. Default is TRUE (sort by p-values).

Value

A data.frame containing the top n switching genes or isoforms as controlled by the extractGenes argument, sorted by q-values or dIF values as controlled by the sortByQvals argument.
