AmpliconDuo List Amplicon Filter


Marks or removes amplicons from each ampliconduo data frame in a list according to the specified filter criteria.


filter.ampliconduo.set(x, min.freq = 1, OR = NULL, q = NULL, p = NULL, remove = FALSE)



List of ampliconduo data frames, return value of an ampliconduo call.


Optional. Integer, minimium frequency/read count for a given amplicon in each of the two amplicon sets of an ampliconduo to be retained. Default value is 1.


Optional. Numeric, minimum odds ratio for an amplicon to be retained. If no value is specified the odds ratio is excluded from the filter criteria.


Optional. Numeric, minimum value for q, the adjusted p-value foran amplicon to pass the filter. If no value is specified, q is excluded from the filter criteria.


Optional. Numeric, minimum p-value for an amplicon to pass the filter. If no value for p is specified p is excluded from the filter criteria.


Optional. Logical, decides whether amplicons that fail the filter criteria should be removed (TRUE), or retained (FALSE).


For every ampliconduo data frame in argument x, applies each filter criterion that was specified to each amplicon. If an amplicon i fails any of the applied criteria, the logical value in column rejected in row i is set to TRUE. In case the parameter remove was set to TRUE, all amplicons with rejected = TRUE are removed. The position information in respect to the data used as input for the ampliconduo call are kept. This method uses the function filter.ampliconduo.


List of ampliconduo data frames. Same as input parameter x but with the adjustments in the rejected column according to the specified filter criteria, or removed rows (removed = TRUE)

filter.ampliconduo, performs filtering on single ampliconduo data.frames, is called by this method.

ampliconduo, generates the input data x for this method.

accepted.amplicons, returns the indices of amplicons that have passed the filter criteria.


## load example data

## apply filter criteria
ampliconduos.f <- filter.ampliconduo.set(amplicons)

## the ampliconduo function was called on) of all amplicons that passed the filter criteria
