HPDplot(model, factors, factors2 = NULL, ylimits = NULL, 
hpdtype = "w", inverse = FALSE, jitter = 0, plot = TRUE, grid = TRUE, 
zero = TRUE, ...)

Arguments

model

The output of mcmc.qpcr function.

factors

A vector of names of fixed effects of interest; see details.

factors2

A second vector of fixed effect names to be subtracted from the first; see details.

ylimits

Y-limits for the plot such as c(-3,6); autoscale by default.

hpdtype

Specify hpdtype="l" to plot the upper and lower 95% credible limits as a continuous dashed line across all genes. This is useful to compare credible intervals among several models on the same plot. By default (hpdtype="w") the limits are plotted as whiskers around each point.

inverse

Plot the inverse of the result.

jitter

For hpdtype="w", shifts the plotted values and whiskers by the specified distance along the x axis (reasonable jitter values are 0.15 or -0.15, for example). This helps plot several results (different models or factor combinations) on the same plot (use HPDpoints to add to existing plot)

plot

if plot = FALSE the function returns a table of calculated posterior modes, means, upper and lower 95% credible limits (all on log(2) scale), and two types of p-values: derived from Bayesian z-scores, and derived directly from MCMC sample.

All such outputs for a given experiment should be concatenated with rbind and processed by padj.qpcr() function to adjust the p-values for multiple comparisons (disregarding the entries corresponding to control genes)

grid

Whether to draw vertical grid lines to separate genes.

zero

Whether to draw a horizontal line at 0.

...

Various plot() options; such as col (color of lines and symbols), pch (type of symbol), main (plot title) etc.

Details

Use summary(MCMCglmm object) first to see what fixed effect names are actually used in the output. For example, if summary shows:

gene1:conditionheat
gene2:conditionheat
....
gene1:timepointtwo
gene2:timepointtwo
....
gene1:conditionheat:timepointtwo
gene2:conditionheat:timepointtwo

, it is possible to specify factors="conditionheat" to plot only the effects of the heat.

If a vector of several fixed effect names is given, for example: factors=c("timepointtwo","treatmentheat:timepointtwo") the function will plot the posterior mean and credible interval for the sum of these effects.

If a second vector is also given, for example,
factors=c("f1","f2"), factors2=c("f3","f4")
the function will plot the difference between the sums of these two groups of factors. This is useful for pairwise analysis of differences in complicated designs.

Value

A plot or a table (plot = F).

Use the function HPDpoints() if you need to add graphs to already existing plot.
