Description

The GdsIntensityReader class is an extension of the GdsReader class specific to reading intensity data stored in GDS files.

GdsReader

Constructor

GdsIntensityReader(filename):

filename must be the path to a GDS file. The GDS file must contain the following variables:

  • 'snp': a coordinate variable with a unique integer vector of snp ids

  • 'chromosome': integer chromosome values of dimension 'snp'

  • 'position': integer position values of dimension 'snp'

  • 'sampleID': a unique integer vector of scan ids with dimension 'sample'

Default values for chromosome codes are 1-22=autosome, 23=X, 24=XY, 25=Y, 26=M. The defaults may be changed with the arguments autosomeCode, XchromCode, XYchromCode, YchromCode, and MchromCode.

The GDS file should also contain at least one of the following variables with dimensions ('snp','sample'):

  • 'quality': quality score

  • 'X': X intensity

  • 'Y': Y intensity

  • 'BAlleleFreq': B allele frequency

  • 'LogRRatio': Log R Ratio

The GdsIntensityReader constructor creates and returns a GdsIntensityReader instance pointing to this file.

Accessors

In the code snippets below, object is a GdsIntensityReader object. snp and scan indicate which elements to return along the snp and scan dimensions. They must be integer vectors of the form (start, count), where start is the index of the first data element to read and count is the number of elements to read. A value of '-1' for count indicates that the entire dimension should be read. If snp and/or is scan omitted, the entire variable is read.

See GdsReader for additional methods.

nsnp(object): The number of SNPs in the GDS file.

nscan(object): The number of scans in the GDS file.

getSnpID(object, index): A unique integer vector of snp IDs. The optional index is a logical or integer vector specifying elements to extract.

getChromosome(object, index, char=FALSE): A vector of chromosomes. The optional index is a logical or integer vector specifying elements to extract. If char=FALSE (default), returns an integer vector. If char=TRUE, returns a character vector with elements in (1:22,X,XY,Y,M,U). "U" stands for "Unknown" and is the value given to any chromosome code not falling in the other categories.

getPosition(object, index): An integer vector of base pair positions. The optional index is a logical or integer vector specifying elements to extract.

getScanID(object, index): A unique integer vector of scan IDs. The optional index is a logical or integer vector specifying elements to extract.

getQuality(object, snp, scan, drop=TRUE): Extracts quality scores. The result is a vector or matrix, depending on the number of dimensions in the returned values and the value of drop. Missing values are represented as NA.

hasQuality(object): Returns TRUE if the GDS file contains a variable 'quality'.

getX(object, snp, scan, drop=TRUE): Extracts X intensity. The result is a vector or matrix, depending on the number of dimensions in the returned values and the value of drop. Missing values are represented as NA.

hasX(object): Returns TRUE if the GDS file contains a variable 'X'.

getY(object, snp, scan, drop=TRUE): Extracts Y intensity. The result is a vector or matrix, depending on the number of dimensions in the returned values and the value of drop. Missing values are represented as NA.

hasY(object): Returns TRUE if the GDS file contains a variable 'Y'.

getBAlleleFreq(object, snp, scan, drop=TRUE): Extracts B allele frequency. The result is a vector or matrix, depending on the number of dimensions in the returned values and the value of drop. Missing values are represented as NA.

hasBAlleleFreq(object): Returns TRUE if the GDS file contains a variable 'BAlleleFreq'.

getLogRRatio(object, snp, scan, drop=TRUE): Extracts Log R Ratio. The result is a vector or matrix, depending on the number of dimensions in the returned values and the value of drop. Missing values are represented as NA.

hasLogRRatio(object): Returns TRUE if the GDS file contains a variable 'LogRRatio'.

getVariable(object, varname, snp, scan, drop=TRUE): Returns the contents of the variable varname. The result is a vector or matrix, depending on the number of dimensions in the returned values and the value of drop. Missing values are represented as NA. If the variable is not found in the GDS file, returns NULL.

autosomeCode(object): Returns the integer codes for the autosomes.

XchromCode(object): Returns the integer code for the X chromosome.

XYchromCode(object): Returns the integer code for the pseudoautosomal region.

YchromCode(object): Returns the integer code for the Y chromosome.

MchromCode(object): Returns the integer code for mitochondrial SNPs.
