corto {corto}R Documentation

Calculate a regulon from a data matrix

Description

This function applies Correlation and DPI to generate a robust regulon object based on the input data matrix and the selected centroids.

Usage

corto(
  inmat,
  centroids,
  nbootstraps = 100,
  p = 1e-30,
  nthreads = 1,
  verbose = FALSE,
  cnvmat = NULL,
  boot_threshold = 0
)

Arguments

inmat

Input matrix, with features (e.g. genes) as rows and samples as columns

centroids

A character vector indicating which features (e.g. genes) to consider as centroids (a.k.a. Master Regulators) for DPI

nbootstraps

Number of bootstraps to be performed. Default is 100

p

The p-value threshold for correlation significance (by default 1E-30)

nthreads

The number of threads to use for bootstrapping. Default is 1

verbose

Logical. Whether to print progress messages. Default is FALSE

cnvmat

An optional matrix with copy-number variation data. If specified, the program will calculate linear regression between the gene expression data in the input matrix (exp) and the cnv data, and target profiles will be transformed to the residuals of each linear model exp~cnv. Default is NULL

boot_threshold

The fraction of bootstraps in which the edge should appear to be included in the final network. It can be any number between 0.0 and 1.0. Default is 0.0.

Value

A list (object of class regulon), where each element is a centroid

Examples

# Load data matrix inmat (from TCGA mesothelioma project)
load(system.file("extdata","inmat.rda",package="corto",mustWork=TRUE))
# Load centroids
load(system.file("extdata","centroids.rda",package="corto",mustWork=TRUE))
# Run corto
regulon <- corto(inmat,centroids=centroids,nthreads=2,nbootstraps=10,verbose=TRUE)

# In a second example, a CNV matrix is provided. The analysis will be run only
# for the features (rows) and samples (columns) present in both matrices
load(system.file("extdata","cnvmat.rda",package="corto",mustWork=TRUE))
regulon <- corto(inmat,centroids=centroids,nthreads=2,nbootstraps=6,verbose=TRUE,cnvmat=cnvmat,
p=1e-8)
