#' Make a volcano plot of the outcome of a uWMW test
#' 
#' This function creates a volcano plot of the outcome of a uWMW test. In this plot, the p-value is plotted against the odd ratio or the log-odds ratio, depending on what interests you most. It allows to quickly see what proportion of results is significant, and what proportion of significant results has a biologically significant chance of being upregulated.
#' 
#' The methods described here all use the same internal function to create the plot
#' 
#' @param fit a uwmwRes object, a matrix with 2 columns or a numeric vector with either odds ratios or the log of odds ratios.
#' @param esttype The estimate that should be plotted from the uwmwRes object. See also \code{\link{getEstimate}}.
#' @param transf.y a function used to transpose the values on the Y axis. For uwmwRes objects, defaults to -log10(y). Passed down to internal function.
#' @param ref.y The location on the Y axis for the reference line.
#' @param coef for compatibility with limma package, see \code{\link{volcanopar}}
#' @param highlight for compatibiity with limma package, see \code{\link{volcanopar}}
#' @param ... arguments passed to the internal function. See \code{\link{volcanopar}}
#' @return invisible NULL
