Directly known subclasses:
AvgCnPlm, AvgSnpPlm

public abstract static class AvgPlm
extends ProbeLevelModel

This class represents a PLM where the probe intensities are averaged assuming identical probe affinities. For instance, one may assume that replicated probes with identical sequences have the same probe affinities, cf. the GenomeWideSNP\_6 chip type.

Usage

AvgPlm(..., flavor=c("median", "mean"))

Arguments

...
Arguments passed to ProbeLevelModel.
flavor
A character string specifying what model fitting algorithm to be used. This makes it possible to get identical estimates as other packages.

Model

For a single unit group, the averaging PLM of K probes is:

y_{ik} = θ_i + \varepsilon_{ik}

where θ_i are the chip effects for arrays i=1,...,I. The \varepsilon_{ik} are zero-mean noise with equal variance.

Different flavors of model fitting

The above model can be fitted in two ways, either robustly or non-robustly. Use argument flavor="mean" to fit the model non-robustly, i.e.

\hat{θ}_{i} = 1/K ∑_k y_{ik}.

Use argument flavor="median" to fit the model robustly, i.e.

\hat{θ}_{i} = median_k y_{ik}.

Missing values are always excluded.
