init.read.exp(batch, imageid, sep="\t", header=TRUE, ...)

Arguments

batch batch name of the experiment
imageid integer value; the index of the slide which is considered
sep the field separator character; the columns of the file will be separated by this character.
header a logical value indicating whether the file contains the names of the variables as its first line.
... graphical parameters may also be supplied as arguments to the function (see par).

Value

A matrix containing the 30 columns of computed measurements, corresponding to the rows of different genes in the specified slide.
Details regarding these measurements can be found at http://www.cmis.csiro.au/iap/Spot/spotoutput.htm.
