pval.bmrmr {BootMRMR} | R Documentation |
The function computes ths statisical significance values for the genes from the non-parametric test "H0: i-th gene is not informative against H1: i-th gene is informative" for selection of informative genes using Bootstrap-MRMR technique
pval.bmrmr(x, y, s, Q, plot)
x |
x is a N by p data frame of gene expression values where rows represent genes and columns represent samples/subject/time point. Each cell entry represents the expression level of a gene in a sample/subject (row names of x as gene names/gene ids). |
y |
y is a p by 1 numeric vector with entries 1 and -1 representing sample labels, where 1 and -1 represents the sample label of subjects/ samples for stress and control condition respectively. |
s |
s is a scalar representing the number of bootstraps generated, s must be sufficiently large (i.e. number of times bootstrap samples are generated |
Q |
Q is a scalar representing the quartile value of the gene rankscores (lies within 1/N to 1), usually the second quartile (Q2), i.e. 0.5 or third quartile (Q3) i.e. 0.75 is taken. |
plot |
plot is a character string must either take logical value TRUE/FALSE representing whether to plot the statistical significance values of genes in the dataset. |
The function returns a vector of p-values for all the genes from the given statistical test in the dataset using Bootstrap-MRMR technique.
