y

a numeric matrix of log-expression values or log-ratios of expression values, or any data object containing such a matrix.
Rows correspond to probes and columns to samples.
Any type of object that can be processed by

`getEAWP`

is acceptable.
index

an index vector or a list of index vectors. Can be any vector such that

`y[index,]`

selects the rows corresponding to the test set. The list can be made using `ids2indices`

.design

design matrix.

contrast

contrast of the linear model coefficients for which the test is required. Can be an integer specifying a column of

`design`

, or else a numeric vector of same length as the number of columns of `design`

.weights

can be a numeric matrix of individual weights, of same size as

`y`

, or a numeric vector of array weights with length equal to `ncol(y)`

, or a numeric vector of gene weights with length equal to `nrow(y)`

.use.ranks

do a rank-based test (

`TRUE`

) or a parametric test (`FALSE`

)?allow.neg.cor

should reduced variance inflation factors be allowed for negative correlations?

inter.gene.cor

numeric, optional preset value for the inter-gene correlation within tested sets. If

`NA`

or `NULL`

, then an inter-gene correlation will be estimated for each tested set.trend.var

logical, should an empirical Bayes trend be estimated? See

`eBayes`

for details.sort

logical, should the results be sorted by p-value?

...

other arguments are not currently used

- NGenes
- number of genes in set.
- Correlation
- inter-gene correlation (only included if the
`inter.gene.cor`

was not preset). - Direction
- direction of change (
`"Up"`

or`"Down"`

). - PValue
- two-tailed p-value.
- FDR
- Benjamini and Hochberg FDR adjusted p-value.
- vif
- variance inflation factor.
- correlation
- inter-gene correlation.

`camera`

returns a data.frame with a row for each set and the following columns:
`interGeneCorrelation`

returns a list with components:
`camera`

and `interGeneCorrelation`

implement methods proposed by Wu and Smyth (2012).
`camera`

performs a `geneSetTest`

but accounts for inter-gene correlation.
See `roast`

for an analogous The function can be used for any microarray experiment which can be represented by a linear model.
The design matrix for the experiment is specified as for the `lmFit`

function, and the contrast of interest is specified as for the `contrasts.fit`

function.
This allows users to focus on differential expression for any coefficient or contrast in a linear model by giving the vector of test statistic values.

`camera`

estimates p-values after adjusting the variance of test statistics by an estimated variance inflation factor.
The inflation factor depends on estimated genewise correlation and the number of genes in the gene set.

By default, `camera`

uses `interGeneCorrelation`

to estimate the mean pair-wise correlation within each set of genes.
`camera`

can alternatively be used with a preset correlation specified by `inter.gene.cor`

that is shared by all sets.
This usually works best with a small value, say `inter.gene.cor=0.01`

.

If `interGeneCorrelation=NA`

, then `camera`

will estimate the inter-gene correlation for each set.
In this mode, `camera`

gives rigorous error rate control for all sample sizes and all gene sets.
However, in this mode, highly co-regulated gene sets that are biological interpretable may not always be ranked at the top of the list.

With `interGeneCorrelation=0.01`

, `camera`

will rank biologically interpetable sets more highly.
This gives a useful compromise between strict error rate control and interpretable gene set rankings.
