Read data sets into R

Function to import data set(s) into R and reformat it (them) to form required for other functions in MetaDE package.

Usage
MetaDE.Read(filenames, via = c("txt", "csv"), skip,matched=FALSE, log = TRUE)
Arguments
filenames
a character vecter specifying the names of data sets to read data values from. Should be a tab-separated or comma-separated text file, with one row per gene set.
via
a character to specify the type of data sets. "txt" means tab delimited files and "csv" means comma-delimited files.
skip
a vecter of size K (the number of data sets) composes of 1 or 2. see 'Details'.
matched
a logical to specify whether the gene ProbeIDs have been matched into gene symbols in each data set.
log
a logical to specify wheter data sets need to be log2-transformed.
Details

The files to be read in should be prepared strictly according following format: If matched is FALSE, column 1 has gene ProbeIds, column 2 has gene symbols, remaining columns are samples. If matched is TRUE, column 1 has gene symbols, remaining columns are samples. If the data set is a survival data, the second row should has the survival time,and third row should have the status of events,and remaining rows are gene expression files . otherwise, the second row should has the labels of samples and remaing rows are gene expression profiles. If the ith file is a survival data,the corresponding element of skip should be 2, otherwise, 1. The user can prepare the files according the structure of files wrote out using the example file.

Value

  • a list of studies. Each study is a list with components:
    • x: the gene expression matrix.
    • y: the outcome.
    • censoring.status: the censoring status. This only for survival data.
    • symbol: the gene symbols. This is only for un-matched raw data.
