Description

plot.snp.dprime takes a snp.dprime object and draw an eps file to visualize the pairwise D', $r^2$ and LOD.

## S3 method for class 'snp.dprime'
plot(x, filename, scheme = "standard", do.notes = FALSE,
metric=NULL, ...)

Arguments

x

An object of class snp.dprime

filename

The output file name, preferably ending with ".eps" (not enforced)

scheme

The colour scheme used. Valid values are "standard" for the Haploview default, and "rsq" for grayscale $r^2$. More may come later

do.notes

Boolean for whether to generate pdf annotation-related code

metric

An integer vector, detailing the chromosome position of the SNP, to drawa scaled metric of the location of the SNP. If NULL, no metric would be drawn

...

place holder

Details

Annotation is a little used pdf features where certain part of a pdf file are hot spots where one can get pop-up balloons containing extra information, which doesn't appear in print. This is written to imitate the extra information one can get from right-clicking in Haploview's GUI.

Value

return nothing. Write a file as a result. And if do.notes is specified, Will also suggest user to execute ps2pdf -dEPSCrop <filename> to get a suitable pdf.

Note

Unfortunately, there are two problems with annotations: only Acrobat Reader (out of all the pdf viewers, e.g. xpdf, kpdf, evince, various ghostscript based viewers) implements the feature, and a few thousand annotations can really make Acrobat Reader crawl.

Also, Acrobat Reader has an implementation limit of 200 inches of the widest dimension of a document. This translates to 1200 snps in the current implementation of the drawing code, hence a warning is emitted that pdf written this way is not viewable by Acrobat Reader.(but viewable by xpdf, etc). A work around is possible based on LaTeX pdfpage, or eps can be included with scaling in another document, to stay inside 200 inches.

In the future, one might want to put some additional scaling code to fit the whole drawing within an A4, for example.

There is a Google Summer of code http://code.google.com/soc/ 2006 project to improve kpdf's annotation support. http://wiki.kde.org/tiki-index.php?page=KDE%20Google%20SoC%202006%20ideas#id60851 I am involved.
