prior.temporal_proximity_is_good {cellOrigins} | R Documentation |
Accepts one or more anatomical terms and assigns to them a prior probability in the Bayesian sense.
prior.all_equal
assumes all terms and combinations to be equally probable.
prior.temporal_proximity_is_good
is meant mainly for use with BDGP_insitu_dmel_embryo
if working with single or staged embryos.
With this function the prior probability increases if the developmental stages in the tested terms are close together.
The magnitude of the prior is scaled to the number of tested genes.
