Transform replicated arrays into (A,M) format


Transforms expression intensity measurements for replicated arrays of a single experimental condition into (A,M) format: A = (xi+xj)/2, M = (xi-xj) where x1, x2,..., xn are individual chips. This function is used in the estimation of within-bin variances in the LPE function, and not typically by the user.




y y is an ngene by n matrix of expression intensity measurements for replicated arrays under a single experimental condition.


Returns matrix with 2 columns cbind(A.M) and rows comprising all permutations of individual chip columns of the input matrix y. Note that for each pair of chips M is calculated twice, once for xi-xj and once for xj-xi. The resulting marix thus has twice the number of rows as the input matrix y.
