Description

Plot of similarity matrix. This function is a slight modification of function plot.cor of the archived package "sma".

corPlot(x, new = FALSE, col, minCor, 
          labels = FALSE, lab.both.axes = FALSE, labcols = "black", 
          title = "", cex.title = 1.2, 
          protocol = FALSE, cex.axis = 0.8, 
          cex.axis.bar = 1, signifBar = 2, ...)

Arguments

x

data or correlation matrix, respectively

new

If new=FALSE, x must already be a correlation matrix. If new=TRUE, the correlation matrix for the columns of x is computed and displayed in the image.

col

colors palette for image. If missing, the RdYlGn palette of RColorBrewer is used.

minCor

numeric value in [-1,1], used to adjust col

labels

vector of character strings to be placed at the tickpoints, labels for the columns of x.

lab.both.axes

logical, display labels on both axes

labcols

colors to be used for the labels of the columns of x. labcols can have either length 1, in which case all the labels are displayed using the same color, or the same length as labels, in which case a color is specified for the label of each column of x.

title

character string, overall title for the plot.

cex.title

A numerical value giving the amount by which plotting text and symbols should be magnified relative to the default; cf. par, cex.main.

protocol

logical, display color bar without numbers

cex.axis

The magnification to be used for axis annotation relative to the current setting of 'cex'; cf. par.

cex.axis.bar

The magnification to be used for axis annotation of the color bar relative to the current setting of 'cex'; cf. par.

signifBar

integer indicating the precision to be used for the bar.

...

graphical parameters may also be supplied as arguments to the function (see par). For comparison purposes, it is good to set zlim=c(-1,1).

Details

This functions generates the so called similarity matrix (based on correlation) for a microarray experiment.

If min(x), respectively min(cor(x)) is smaller than minCor, the colors in col are adjusted such that the minimum correlation value which is color coded is equal to minCor.

Value

invisible()

Note

A first version of this function appeared in package SLmisc.

## only a dummy example
M <- matrix(rnorm(1000), ncol = 20)
colnames(M) <- paste("Sample", 1:20)
M.cor <- cor(M)

corPlot(M.cor, minCor = min(M.cor))
corPlot(M.cor, minCor = min(M.cor), lab.both.axes = TRUE)
corPlot(M.cor, minCor = min(M.cor), protocol = TRUE)
corPlot(M.cor, minCor = min(M.cor), signifBar = 1)
