rmatrain {bapred}R Documentation

RMA normalization with “documentation by value” (Kostka & Spang, 2008)

Description

Performs RMA normalization and returns the normalized dataset together with information necessary for addon RMA normalization (Kostka & Spang, 2008) using rmaaddon.

Usage

rmatrain(affybatchtrain)

Arguments

affybatchtrain

object of class AffyBatch. Affymetrix GeneChip probe level data.

Details

This function uses code from the off-CRAN package docval, version 1.0.

Value

rmatrain returns an object of class rmatrain. An object of class "rmatrain" is a list containing the following components:

xnorm

matrix of RMA normalized (training) data. Observations in rows, variables in columns.

rmadoc, sumdoc.rma, nfeature

information necessary for addon RMA normalization
