Re: How to script calibration curve

It did work perfectly. And it does what I asked help for. But there were two parts of my initial post. The first was to know how to script the calibration just like you showed me.

The second, which is not related to the first, so it would be a completely different script, is to do the following:

The unknown table has 3 samples, each sample was analyzed for 74 Peps. 29 of those Peps I want to use them for calibration of the other 45. And I want to do that by fetching the AU 2 values from the calibration table. So the script should fetch the AU 2 values from the calibration table and join them with the 1-29 Peps for each sample in the unknown table, after which should make a calibration curve (linear regression) for each of the samples and attribute AU 2 values to the remainder 45 Peps.

Thank you for bearing with me!

I know that the values do not correlate, these were randomly generated values with the purpose of learning how to script.

Some of the predicted AU 2 values are missing due to the random measurements of AU 1.

Re: How to script calibration curve

This is perfect! Thank you so much Mark!

Re: How to script calibration curve

I think I spoke too soon. There is one issue Mark. Right now the script is pulling all AU 2 values from the calib table to the unk table fort the calibrators and that is fine. But then the new table is using all that were assigned with the calibrator designation to be used in the fit model and the unknowns are being predicted from that one model (that has the calibrators from sample 1, 2 and 3 pooled together), right?

What I need is a fit model per sample and that the unknowns of that sample be determined with the fit model associated with that sample only.

Re: How to script calibration curve

So the three sample sets should be handled separate?

Re: How to script calibration curve

Yes, they have the 29 peps as internal calibrators. Those specific 29 peps should fetch the AU 2 values from the calib table and then each set calibrate the remainder peps associated to the sample number.
I think I made this more confusing by asking for two different things in the same post. I’m sorry for that.

Re: How to script calibration curve

It works perfectly! Thank you.

I think I understand what each line of code is doing. I do have some doubts about these:

For Each Row(
:Status = If( 1 <= Num( Regex( :Peps, "\w{3}(\d+)", "\1" ) ) <= 29, "Calibrator", "Unknown" );
For( s = 1, s <= 3, s++,
// isolate sample
ss = Char( s );
combined
<< Select Where( :Sample == ss )
<< Invert Row Selection
<< Exclude;

Could you explain them to me, please?

Re: How to script calibration curve

You doubt my code? Well, it is your prerogative.

The first example populates a new column without using a column formula property.

For Each Row(
:Status = If( 1 <= Num( Regex( :Peps, "\w{3}(\d+)", "\1" ) ) <= 29, "Calibrator", "Unknown" );
);

The For Each Row() function iterates over the rows of the current data table. It handles indexing rows automatically. So the assignment occurs row-wise. The right side of the assignment is the If() function. The first argument is interpreted as a Boolean expression. If this expression evaluates to true, the the second argument ("Calibrator") is evaluated and returned. Otherwise, the third argument ("Unknown") is evaluated and returned. The first argument determines if the Peps number is in the range of 1 to 29. The number string is extracted with a regular expression and converted to a number. The regular expression matches a pattern of three word characters followed by one or more digit characters. The back reference returns the only capturing group.

The second example iterates over the three samples in the data set.

For( s = 1, s <= 3, s++,
// isolate sample
ss = Char( s );
combined
<< Select Where( :Sample == ss )
<< Invert Row Selection
<< Exclude;

It uses an integer index that is converted to a character string to match the data column attribute. It sends a cascade of messages to the combined data table to (1) select all the rows for the current sample, (2) change the selection to all the rows not for the current sample, and (3) excludes those rows. This approach is usually simpler and faster than subsetting data tables and later joining and concatenating the data tables with the results.

Re: How to script calibration curve

I think you've misunderstood me. By doubts, I meant that I didn't understand the function of the code. I know very very little about coding and I wouldn't dare to doubt your code!  I'm just trying to understand and learn from you.

I think I understand the first example.

In the second example, if instead of numbers the samples also have a text designation, how would the code be changed? For example, instead of sample 1, 2 and 3, we have sample 001-AAA, 002-AAA and 003-AAA?
