Description

Computes the constrast between groups for the deconvolved cell-specific expression for each cell-type

Usage

1
2
csSAM(ghat1, se1, n1, ghat2, se2, n2, standardize, medianCenter = TRUE,
  nonNeg = FALSE, stat.only = TRUE)

Arguments

ghat1

Expression matrix of deconvolved cell-specific gene expression estimates for group 1.

se1

Standard error group 1

n1

Group 1 size

ghat2

Expression matrix of deconvolved cell-specific gene expression estimates for group 2.

se2

Standard error group 2

n2

Group 2 size

standardize

Standardize contrast values, into SAM shrinked statistic.

medianCenter

Median center rhat distributions for each cell-type

nonNeg

Negative values not allowed such as in a single channel microarray. Zero them if negative (a conervative option)

stat.only

logical that indicates if the returned object should consists in the matrix of cell type-specific SAM statistic only, or contain more detailed data about the fit (see section Value).

Value

A matrix object that contains the – standardised – contrast of the average cell-specific expression profile of the two groups, per cell-type (Size k by g where k is the number of cells and g is the number of genes).

If stat.only=FALSE, then result is a list with the following elements, where matrix elements have cell types in rows and genes in columns:

coefficients

a matrix of cell-specific contrasts between the two groups

se

a matrix of cell-specific standard errors

s0

a matrix of cell-specific standard error SAM shrinkage

stat

a matrix of – possibly median-centered – cell-specific SAM shrinked t-test statistics

stat.med

a vector containing the medians of each cell-specific SAM shrinked t-test statistics
