Arguments

mutation_data

The mutation data in the format outputted by getMutations.

alignment

The assembly structural information outputted by makeAlignedSuperStructure.

perform.ipac

Whether or not to perform the iPAC algorithm. Either a "Y" or a "N".

perform.graphpac

Whether or not to perform the GraphPAC algorithm. Either a "Y" or a "N".

perform.spacepac

Whether or not to perform the SpacePAC algorithm. Either a "Y" or a "N".

insertion.type

Specifies the type of insertion method used in the GraphpAC package. Please see the GraphPAC for more details.

MultComp

Specifies the multiple comparison adjustment required by the iPAC and GraphPAC packages. Options are: "Bonferroni", "BH", or "None". Please see the iPAC and GraphPAC packages for details.

alpha

The significance level required in order to find a mutational cluster significant using the iPAC and GraphPAC algorithms.

show.low.level.messages

Whether to display the output messages generated by the iPAC, GraphPAC and SpacePAC algorithms. Either a "Y" or a "N". Commonly used for debugging.

ipac.method

The type of approach used by iPAC to map the protein to 1D space. This parameter usually set to "MDS", but can be set to "linear" as well. See the iPAC package for more details.

spacepac.method

The type of approach used by SpacePAC to identify clustering. The options are either "SimMax" or "Poisson. This parameter usually set to "SimMax". See the SpacePAC package for more details.

create.map

Whether a graphical representation of the iPAC algorithm's dimension reduction from 3D to 1D space should be diplsayed. Either "Y" or "N".

Show.Graph

Whether to show the iPAC package dimension reduction chart on the screen. Warning: You must be running R in a GUI environment, otherwise, an error will occur.

Graph.Output.Path

Where to save the dimension reduction chart. This is useful if you want to save the chart automatically or can't display it on the screen (for instance, you are running R in a terminal window).The Graph.File.Name variable must be set as well.

Graph.File.Name

If you would like the chart saved automatically to the disk, specify the output file name. The Graph.Output.Path variable must be set as well.

Graph.Title

The title of the graph to be created.

fix.start.pos

For the GraphPAC package, the heuristic solver for the traveling salesman problem starts the path at a random amino acid. In order to make the results easily reproducible, the default starts the path on the first amino acid in the protein. Please see the GraphPAC package for more details.

numsims

The number of times to simulate the distribution of mutations over the protein quaternary structure for the SpacePAC algorithm. For each simulation, given m total mutations and n total amino acids, each amino acid has a m/n probability of mutation.

simMaxSpheres

For the SpacePAC algorithm, the maximum number of spheres to consider. Currently, the implementation allows for simMaxspheres to be either 1, 2 or 3.

radii.vector

This applies to the SpacePAC algorithm and denotes the vector of radii that will be considered. At each sphere radius, the best sphere combination is found. See the SpaceClust method in the SpacePAC package for further details

OriginX

If the "Linear" method is chosen for the iPAC algorithm, this specifies the x-coordinate part of the fixed point. See the vignette in the iPAC package for more details.

OriginY

If the "Linear" method is chosen for the iPAC algorithm, this specifies the y-coordinate part of the fixed point. See the vignette in the iPAC package for more details.

OriginZ

If the "Linear" method is chosen for the iPAC algorithm, this specifies the z-coordinate part of the fixed point. See the vignette in the iPAC package for more details.

Value

ipac

The clustering results using the iPAC algorithm. See the iPAC packagee for more details of each sub item.

graphpac

The clustering results using the GraphPAC algorithm. See the GraphPAC package for more details of each sub item.

spacepac

The clustering results using the SpacePAC algorithm. See the SpacePAC package for more details of each sub item.

ipac_messages

Any messages that might of been reported by the iPAC algorithm. Typically, warning or error messages are displayed here.

graphpac_messages

Any messages that might of been reported by the GraphPAC algorithm. Typically, warning or error messages are displayed here.

spacepac_messages

Any messages that might of been reported by the SpacePAC algorithm. Typically, warning or error messages are displayed here.

Note

The clustering results give the serial number values from the *.pdb1 file.

Most of the parameters simply pass the requisite values to the underlying iPAC, GraphPAC and SpacePAC algorithms. The user should be aware of the parameters for these algorithms as this package is designed to extend them to quaternary structures.
