Dear Bioconductor users,

I am using the rpkm() function of edgeR and I was wondering how the rpkm value is calculated by this function.

I tried:

> library(edgeR)
> rpkm
function (x, ...) 
<environment: namespace:edgeR>

So I tried:

> UseMethod("rpkm")
Error in UseMethod("rpkm") : 'UseMethod' used in an inappropriate fashion

Would you know how I can get the source code for this function?

Thanks a lot!

'UseMethod' means that rpkm is a so-called 'S3' generic. A generic has methods associated with it. See the methods with methods(rpkm), and then look at the specific method you're interested in, e.g.,

> methods(rpkm)
[1] rpkm.default rpkm.DGEList
see '?methods' for accessing help and source code
> rpkm.default
function (x, gene.length, lib.size = NULL, log = FALSE, prior.count = 0.25, 
    y <- cpm.default(x = x, lib.size = lib.size, log = log, prior.count = prior.count)
    gene.length.kb <- gene.length/1000
    if (log) 
        y - log2(gene.length.kb)
    else y/gene.length.kb
<environment: namespace:edgeR>
