graphPAC-package: Using Graph Theory to Identify Mutational Clusters of Amino...

Description Details Author(s) References Examples

Description

The GraphPAC package identifies statistically significant clusters of non-synonomous amino acid mutations and is a sister package to iPAC. GraphPAC reorders the protein into a one dimensional space via a graph theoretrical approach. Specifically, the traveling salesman problem (TSP) is solved heuristically via the TSP package. Once solved, the mutational data is reordered to follow the hamiltonian path and the nmc algorithm is run to find the mutational clusters on the remapped protein. Unlike the MDS remapping approach that is used in iPAC, distant amino acids no longer have an effect on each other's position in one dimensional space allowing for a closer representation of the underlying biology.

Details

Please see the documentation for “get.Positions", “get.AlignedPositions", and "Plot.Protein.Linear" in the iPAC package. There you will find information on getting basic positional data and plotting functions.
