Draw a LowMACA comprehensive plot of a specified gene within a LowMACA object

Description

LowMACA comprehensive plot is a four layers plot that summarize the entire LowMACA output

Usage

1
lmPlotSingleSequence(object , gene , mail=NULL , perlCommand="perl")

Arguments

object

a LowMACA class object

gene

a Gene Symbol that identifies one of the gene analyzed in the LowMACA object

mail

if not NULL, it must be a valid email address to use EBI clustalo web service. Default is to use a local clustalo installation

perlCommand

a character string containing the path to Perl executable. if missing, "perl" will be used as default. Only used in web mode

Details

If the specified gene has more than one domain of the same type and mode is pfam, the plot is composed by four layers:

  1. The bar plot visualized by bpAll

  2. The distribution of mutations against the 95% confidence interval superior limit of the null hypothesis (dotted line) with orange bars representing a position with a pvalue <0.05 and a red star for qvalue<0.05

  3. The Trident score distribution

  4. The logo plot representing the consensus sequence

If the specified gene has only one domain of the same type and mode is pfam, the plot is composed by two layers:

  1. The bar plot visualized by bpAll

  2. The distribution of mutations against the 95% confidence interval superior limit of the null hypothesis (dotted line) with orange bars representing a position with a pvalue <0.05 and a red star for qvalue<0.05

If mode is gene, the plot is composed by three layers:

  1. The bar plot visualized by bpAll

  2. The Pfam domains structure inside the protein

  3. The distribution of mutations against the 95% confidence interval superior limit of the null hypothesis (dotted line) with orange bars representing a position with a pvalue <0.05 and a red star for qvalue<0.05

Value

NULL
