Metadata that describes the samples.

sampleData(object, ...)

# S4 method for DESeqAnalysis
sampleData(object)

Arguments

object

Object.

...

Additional arguments.

Value

DataFrame.

Details

This is a complement to the standard colData() function, but improves support for accessing sample metadata for datasets where multiple items in the columns map to a single sample (e.g. cells for a single-cell RNA-seq experiment).

Examples

data(deseq) x <- sampleData(deseq) head(x)
#> DataFrame with 6 rows and 3 columns #> condition sampleName interestingGroups #> <factor> <factor> <factor> #> sample01 A sample01 A #> sample02 A sample02 A #> sample03 A sample03 A #> sample04 A sample04 A #> sample05 A sample05 A #> sample06 A sample06 A
