Arguments

fo

ggplot figure object

yaxis_scale

TRUE indicates that the y-axis should be log10 scaled

xaxis_scale

TRUE indicates that the x-axis should be log10 scaled

ylim_min

set to a number to define the lower bound of the y-axis

ylim_max

set to a number to define the upper bound of the y-axis

xlim_min

set to a number to define the lower bound of the x-axis

xlim_max

set to a number to define the upper bound of the x-axis

x_tick_label

TRUE to show x tick labels, FALSE to hide the x tick labels

y_tick_label

TRUE to show y tick labels, FALSE to hide the y tick labels
