maNorm2D {marray}R Documentation

2D spatial location normalization function


This function is used for 2D spatial location normalization, using the robust local regression function loess. It should be used as an argument to the main normalization function maNormMain.


maNorm2D(x="maSpotRow", y="maSpotCol", z="maM", g="maPrintTip", w=NULL,
subset=TRUE, span=0.4, ...)


x Name of accessor method for spot row coordinates, usually maSpotRow.
y Name of accessor method for spot column coordinates, usually maSpotCol.
z Name of accessor method for spot statistics, usually the log-ratio maM.
g Name of accessor method for print-tip-group indices, usually maPrintTip.
w An optional numeric vector of weights.
subset A "logical" or "numeric" vector indicating the subset of points used to compute the fits.
span The argument span which controls the degree of smoothing in the loess function.
... Misc arguments


The spot statistic named in z is regressed on spot row and column coordinates, separately within print-tip-group, using the loess function.


A function with bindings for the above arguments. This latter function takes as argument an object of class "marrayRaw" (or possibly "marrayNorm"), and returns a vector of fitted values to be substracted from the raw log-ratios. It calls the function ma2D, which is not specific to microarray objects.
