TestResults-class {limma}R Documentation

Matrix of Test Results - class


A matrix-based class for storing the results of simultanous tests. TestResults objects are normally created by classifyTestsF, classifyTestsT or classifyTestsP.


## S3 method for class 'TestResults':
summary(object, ...)


object object of class TestResults
... other arguments are not used

Slots/List Components

TestResults objects can be created by new("TestResults",results) where results is a matrix. Objects of this class contain no slots (other than .Data), although the attributes dim and dimnames may be treated as slots.


This class inherits directly from class matrix so any operation appropriate for matrices will work on objects of this class. show and summary methods are also implemented.

Functions in LIMMA which operate on TestResults objects include heatDiagram, vennCounts, vennDiagram, write.fit.
