Plots the Membership Functions (Low, Medium, High) used to discretize gene expression values

Share:

Description

Each gene has 3 Membership Functions (‘Low’, ‘Medium’ and ‘High’) which can be plotted as curves in graphical mode.
In the text mode a membership function is represented with its center and width.
This function receives one or more gene names and plots the results in both graphical and text mode. If a set of genes containing more than 36 elements is provided, only the text mode is available.

Usage

1

Arguments

rmadataset

An ExpressionSet object with AnnotatedDataFrame metadata.

mfs

A list of 3 ExpressionLevel objects (‘Low’, ‘Medium’ and ‘High’) for each gene (a list of lists).

genes

The set of genes to plot (a vector).

Value

A dataframe with the values of the membership functions (‘Low’, ‘Medium’ and ‘High’) for each gene (in rows) received as a parameter.
