cisEffectPlot: DNA-mRNA plot

Description Usage Arguments Note Author(s) References See Also Examples

Description

A variant on the boxplot, plotting the gene expression against the DNA copy number data. For each individual an open blue circle per call is plotted, all with their centerpoint at the height of the individual's expression level. The radius of the circles is proportional to the corresponding call probabilities. Call probabilities equal to zero reduce circles to dots. The red filled circles have a radius proportional to the estimated expected call probabilities, with their centerpoints at the estimated mean expression for the respective call.

Usage

1
cisEffectPlot(geneId, CNdata, GEdata, verbose=FALSE)

Arguments

geneId

Indicator of the gene to be plotted. Indicator refers to the row in the ExpressionSet-object.

CNdata

Object of class cghCall, containing (among others) annotion and call probabilities. Features should be matched with those of the accompanying ExpressionSet-object (as may be done using the matchAnn2Ann-function).

GEdata

Object of class ExpressionSet. Features should be matched with those of the accompanying cghCall-object (as may be done using the matchAnn2Ann-function).

verbose

Logical indicator: should intermediate output be printed on the screen?

Note

This function is a rewritten version of the intCNGEan.plot function of the intCNGEan-package.
