public static class QuantileNormalization
extends ProbeLevelTransform

This class represents a normalization function that transforms the probe-level signals towards the same empirical distribution.

Usage

QuantileNormalization(..., subsetToUpdate=NULL, typesToUpdate=NULL,
  targetDistribution=NULL, subsetToAvg=subsetToUpdate, typesToAvg=typesToUpdate)

Arguments

...

Arguments passed to the constructor of ProbeLevelTransform.

subsetToUpdate

The probes to be updated. If NULL, all probes are updated.

typesToUpdate

Types of probes to be updated.

targetDistribution

A numeric vector. The empirical distribution to which all arrays should be normalized to.

subsetToAvg

The probes to calculate average empirical distribution over. If a single numeric in (0,1), then this fraction of all probes will be used. If NULL, all probes are considered.

typesToAvg

Types of probes to be used when calculating the average empirical distribution. If "pm" and "mm" only perfect-match and mismatch probes are used, respectively. If "pmmm" both types are used.
