1 Introduction

This document explains the functionalities available in the a4Classif package.

This package contains for classification of Affymetrix microarray data, stored in an ExpressionSet. This package integrates within the Automated Affymetrix Array Analysis suite of packages.

To demonstrate the functionalities of the package, the ALL dataset is used. The genes are annotated thanks to the addGeneInfo utility function of the a4Preproc package.

data(ALL, package = "ALL")
ALL <- addGeneInfo(ALL)

2 Classify microarray data

2.1 Lasso regression

resultLasso <- lassoClass(object = ALL, groups = "BTtype")
plot(resultLasso, 
    label = TRUE, 
    main = "Lasso coefficients in relation to degree of penalization."
)
