find.params.pdnn {affypdnn}R Documentation

A function to find the experiment specific PDNN parameters

Description

A function to find the paramaters specific to the chips in an AffyBatch object.

Usage

find.params.pdnn(abatch, params.chiptype, optim.method = "BFGS", verbose = TRUE, give.warnings=TRUE)

Arguments

abatch an instance of Affybatch-class.
params.chiptype chip-type specific parameters (see details)
optim.method method for the optimization function optim. When FALSE, a steepest-descent method of our own is used.
verbose verbosity (TRUE or FALSE)
give.warnings report probeset IDs in the abatch that could not be found in the params.chiptype

Details

This function fits PDNN parameters that are specific to experimental values. The parameters common to all the chips of a certain type are returned by the function pdnn.params.chiptype. If NULL, the parameter files included in the package will be used whenever possible...

Value

A list of

lambda The lambda's
Bs The B's
Ns The N's
Fs The F's

Examples

## load a chip-specific parameter file
## (as returned by the function pdnn.params.chiptype)
data(hgu95av2.pdnn.params)

## load experimental data
library(affydata)
data(Dilution)

## one CEL to go faster
afbatch <- Dilution[, 1]
params <- find.params.pdnn(afbatch, hgu95av2.pdnn.params, optim.method =
FALSE, give.warnings=FALSE)
