ppca.scores.plot: Plot scores from a fitted PPCA model

Description Usage Arguments Details Author(s) References See Also


A function to plot the scores resulting from fitting a PPCA model to metabolomic data.





An object resulting from fitting a PPCA model.


Should it be relevant, a vector indicating the known treatment group membership of each observation.


This function produces a series of scatterplots each illustrating the estimated score for each observation within the reduced q dimensional space. The uncertainty associated with the score estimate is also illustrated through its 95

It is often the case that observations are known to belong to treatment groups; the treatment group membership of each observation can be illustrated on the plots produced by utilizing the ‘group’ argument.
