Normalize allele-specific copy numbers (CA,CB)


Normalize allele-specific copy numbers (CA,CB).


## S3 method for class 'array'
calmateByThetaAB(data, references=NULL, ..., truncate=FALSE, refAvgFcn=NULL,
  flavor=c("v2", "v1"), verbose=FALSE)



An Jx2xI numeric array, where J is the number of SNPs, 2 is the number of alleles, and I is the number of samples.


An index vector in [1,I] or a logical vector of length I specifying which samples are used when calculating the reference signals. If NULL, all samples are used. At least 3 samples.


Additional arguments passed to the internal fit function fitCalMaTeInternal.


If TRUE, final ASCNs are forced to be non-negative while preserving the total CNs.


(optional) A function that takes a JxI numeric matrix an argument na.rm and returns a numeric vector of length J. It should calculate some type of average for each of the J rows, e.g. rowMedians. If specified, then the total copy numbers of the calibrated ASCNs are standardized toward (twice) the average of the total copy numbers of the calibrated reference ASCNs.


A character string specifying which flavor of the CalMaTe algorithm to use for fitting the model.


See Verbose.


Returns an Jx2xI numeric array with the same dimension names as argument data.


For backward compatibility, we try to keep all major versions of the CalMaTe algorithm available. Older versions can be used by specifying argument flavor. The default flavor is v2. For more information about the different flavors, see fitCalMaTeInternal.

To calibrate (total,fracB) data, see *calmateByTotalAndFracB(). We strongly recommend to always work with (total,fracB) data instead of (CA,CB) data, because it is much more general.
