Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

View source: R/plotCtHistogram.R

Description

The distribution of Ct values for a selected qPCR sample is shown in a histogram.

Usage

1
plotCtHistogram(q, card = 1, xlab = "Ct", col, main, n = 30, ...)

Arguments

q

an object of class qPCRset.

card

integer, the number of the card (sample) to plot.

xlab

character string, the label for the x-axis.

col

integer or character, the colour for the histogram.

main

character string, the plot title. Default is the name of the sample.

n

integer, number of bins to divide the Ct values into.

...
