Usage

1
addVarFromVar(protdata, basecol, name, vector)

Arguments

protdata

A protdata object of which the data slot needs to be expanded.

basecol

The name of the column in the existing data on which you base your new column.

name

The name of the new variable.

vector

#Here we show how the columns conc, rep and instrlab were added to the object proteinsCPTAC
data(proteinsCPTAC, package="MSqRob")
#Add a grouping factor for the spike-in condition (i.e. 6A, 6B, 6C, 6D and 6E)
conc <- factor(substr(levels(getData(proteinsCPTAC[1])$run), 11,12))
names(conc) <- levels(getData(proteinsCPTAC[1])$run)
proteinsCPTAC <- addVarFromVar(proteinsCPTAC,"run","conc",conc)

#Add a grouping factor for each of the 9 technical repeats (i.e. instrument x run)
rep <- factor(substr(levels(getData(proteinsCPTAC[1])$run), 14,14))
proteinsCPTAC <- addVarFromVar(proteinsCPTAC,"run","rep",rep)

#Add a grouping factor for the instrument effect (i.e. LTQ-Orbitrap at site 86, LTQ-Orbitrap O at site 65 and LTQ-Orbitrap W at site 56)
instrlab <- factor((as.numeric(rep)-1)%/%3+1)
proteinsCPTAC <- addVarFromVar(proteinsCPTAC,"run","instrlab",instrlab)
