Plot a haplo.score.slide Object


Method function to plot an object of class haplo.score.slide. The p-values from haplo.score.slide are for sub-haplotypes of a larger chromosomal region, and these are plotted to visualize the change in p-values as the sub-haplotype "slides" over a chromosome. Plot -log10(p-value) on the y-axis vs. the loci over which it was computed on the x-axis.


## S3 method for class 'haplo.score.slide'
plot(x, pval="global", dist.vec=1:x$n.loci, ...)



The object returned from haplo.score.slide


Character string for the choice of p-value to plot. Options are: "global" (the global score statistic p-value based on an asymptotic chi-square distribution), "global.sim" (the global score statistic simulated p-value), and "max.sim" (the simulated p-value for the maximum score statistic).


Numeric vector for position (i.e., in cM) of the loci along a chromosome. Distances on x-axis will correspond to these positions.


Dynamic parameter for the values of additional parameters for the plot method. Some useful options for manageing the x-axis labels are cex.axis, las, and srt.


The x-axis has tick marks for all loci. The y-axis is the -log10() of the selected p-value. For each haplo.score result, plot a horizontal line at the height of -log10(p-value) drawn across the loci over which it was calculated. Therefore a p-value of 0.001 for the first 3 loci will plot as a horizontal line plotted at y=3 covering the first three tick marks. If the p-value for a set of loci is zero or very near zero, it is set to a minimum. Global asymptotic p-values of zero are set to the minimum of an epsilon or the lowest non-zero p-value in the region. Simulated p-values equal to zero are set to 0.5 divided by the total number of simulations performed.


Nothing is returned.
