resamp.adj {LPE}R Documentation

Resampling based fdr adjustment


Adjusts the fdr based on rank invariant genes


 resamp.adj(x,y, q=0.01, iterations=5, 


x Replicated data from first experimental condition (as matrix or data-frame)
y Replicated data from second experimental condition (as matrix or data-frame)
q q is the quantile width; q=0.01 corresponds to 100 quantiles
iterations Number of iterations to be performed to obtain critical z-statistics Determines the minimum number of genes in a subinterval for selecting the adaptive intervals.


Returns the z-statistics for the null distribution, obtained from resampling the rank invariant genes within each quantile. These z-statistic values are compared with z-statiscs from the original data, and fdr is calculated.
