Defines functions ct.topTargets

Documented in ct.topTargets

##' @title Display the log2 fold change estimates and associated standard deviations of the guides targeting the top 
##' candidates in a crispr screen
##' @description This is a function for displaying candidates from a crispr screen, using the information summarized 
##' in the corresponding \code{fit} and the output from \code{ct.generateResults()}. The fold change and standard deviation 
##' estimates for each gRNA associated with each target (extracted from the \code{coefficients} and \code{stdev.unscaled} slot 
##' of \code{fit}) are plotted on the y axis. Targets are selected on the basis of their gene-level enrichment or depletion 
##' P-values; in the case of ties, they are ranked on the basis of their corresponding Rho statistics. 
##' @param fit An object of class \code{MArrayLM} containing, at minimum, a \code{coefficents} slot with coefficients from the comparison, 
##' and a \code{stdev.unscaled} slot with the corresponding standard deviation of the coefficent estimates. The \code{row.names} attribute 
##' should ideally match that which is found in \code{annotation}.
##' @param summaryDF A data.frame summarizing the results of the screen, returned by the function \code{\link{ct.generateResults}}. 
##' @param annotation An annotation object for the experiment. gRNAs are annotated by 
##' row, and must minimally contain a column \code{geneSymbol}. 
##' @param targets Either the number of top targets to display, or a list of \code{geneSymbol}s contained in the \code{geneSymbol} 
##' slot of the \code{annotation} object. 
##' @param enrich Logical indicating whether to display guides that are enriched (default) or depleted within the screen. If a vector of 
##' \code{geneSymbol}s is specified, this controls the left-t0-right ordering of the corresponding gRNAs. 
##' @param contrast.term If a fit object with multiple coefficients is passed in, a string indiating the coefficient of interest.   
##' @return An image on the default device indicating each gRNA's log2 fold change and the unscaled standard deviation of the effect estimate, 
##' derived from the \code{MArrayLM} object.
