Arguments

intenData

IntensityData object holding the X and Y intensity data from which the B allele frequency and log R ratio are calculated.

genoData

GenotypeData object.

filename

The name of the genotype GDS or netCDF file to create

file.type

The type of file to create ("gds" or "ncdf")

min.n.genotypes

The minimum number of samples for each genotype at any SNP in order to have non-missing B allele freqency and log R ratio. Setting this parameter to 2 or a similar value is recommended.

call.method

If call.method is 'by.plate', the B allele frequency and log R ratio are calculated for samples delineated by plates. This is the default method. If call.method is 'by.study', the calculation uses all samples at once. If a study does not have plate specifications, 'by.study' is the call.method that must be used.

plate.name

Character string specifying the name of the plate variable in intenData or genoData. By default, the plate.name is simply 'plate' but oftentimes there are variations, such as 'plateID' or 'plate.num'.

block.size

An integer specifying the number of SNPs to be loaded at one time. The recommended value is around 1000, but should vary depending on computing power.

precision

A character value indicating whether floating point numbers should be stored as "double" or "single" precision.

compress

The compression level for variables in a GDS file (see add.gdsn for options.

verbose

Logical value specifying whether to show progress information.

Details

Because this function can take a considerable amount of time and space, sufficient attention should be given to the value used for block.size.
