EBAM specific print method


Prints the numbers of differentially expressed genes and the estimated FDRs for a set of values of delta when performing an Empirical Bayes Analysis of Microarrays.


  print(x, delta = NULL, n.digits = 4)


x an EBAM object
delta a numeric value or vector between 0 and 1 specifying the minimum posterior probabilities for a gene to be called differentially expressed. If NULL, the values of delta are used that have been specified when generating the EBAM object specified by x
n.digits an integer specifying the number of decimal places in the output
