n.genes.adaptive.int {LPE}R Documentation

Calcuates the number of genes in various intervals adaptively.

Description

Instead of dividing the genes equally in 100 intervals, this function divides them adaptively based on three rules: a) min. number of genes (default =10), b) max. number of genes = total/100; c) based on Median + fraction(SD) from the starting gene of each interval

Usage

  n.genes.adaptive.int(baseOlig.error.step1.res,
                min.genes.int=10, div.factor=1)

Arguments

baseOlig.error.step1.res It is the result from baseOlig.error.step1 function.
min.genes.int It is the minimum number of genes in the interval, default=10.
div.factor (1/div.factor) is the fraction of Standard Deviation which we wish to include in each interval to calculate number of genes in each interval

Value

Returns a vector respresenting the number of genes in each interval.
