Dear All, I wonder if someone could point me towards some guidance using the package 'sizepower'. The archives have not netted much in this regard; the vignette was very useful. I'm doing a prospective power analysis for an array experiment with a matched pair design. I found the function power.matched(ERO, G0, absMu1, sigmaD, n) useful, however, I have a few questions. Two issues: 1. I don't have a good feel for the parameter ER0 - mean number of false positives. Of course I'd like it to be as low as possible, so I simply ran scenarios with setting ER0 at numbers we'd be able to tolerate and calculate power/sample size accordingly. 2. Pardon my ignorance, but I'm also struggling with parameter G0 - anticipated number of genes in the experiment that are not differentially expressed. At the moment, I'm assuming G0=G i.e. number of gene (probes) tested. Does G0 need to be based on the number of gene probes on the array (~46,000)? Inspecting a similar paradigm on the same array platform on GEO reveals that only about ~12,000 gene probes are consistently detected. I'm aware that it doesn't make a huge difference (and almost none in practical terms), but I'm curious. I've left the parameter absMu1 at 1 (as I understand it, this represents effect size, as fold change of at least 2). My sigmaD parameter comes from a preliminary experiment: gene expression by qPCR, standard deviation of the (log2) differences between pairs. Thanks for the help. Cheers, michael P.S. If I should be using a different package for the task at hand, I'd like to hear such a recommendation as well - thanks.
