calmateByTotalAndFracB.array {calmate}R Documentation

Normalize allele-specific copy numbers (total,fracB)


Normalize allele-specific copy numbers (total,fracB), where total is the total (non-polymorphic) signal and fracB is the allele B fraction. It is only loci with a non-missing (NA) fracB value that are considered to be SNPs and normalized by CalMaTe. The other loci are left untouched.


## S3 method for class 'array'
calmateByTotalAndFracB(data, references=NULL, ..., refAvgFcn=NULL, verbose=FALSE)



An Jx2xI numeric array, where J is the number of loci, 2 is total and fracB (in that order, if unnamed), and I is the number of samples.


A logical or numeric vector specifying which samples should be used as the reference set. By default, all samples are considered. If not NULL at least 3 samples.


Additional arguments passed to *calmateByThetaAB().


(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.


See Verbose.


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