Description

The function plotMotifs() generates 2 bar charts showing the log2FC and the number of occurences of each motif found in the target sequences (e.g detected Vs randomly selected).

Arguments

mergedMotifsFTS

A data frame containing the number of occurences of each motif found in foreground target sequences (e.g from detected back-spliced junctions). It can be generated with the mergeMotifs.

mergedMotifsBTS

A data frame containing the number of occurences of each motif found in the background target sequences (e.g. from random back-spliced junctions). It can be generated with the mergeMotifs.

log2FC

An integer specifying the log2FC cut-off. Default value is 1.

NOTE: log2FC is calculated as follow: normalized number of occurences of each motif found in the foreground target sequences / normalized number of occurences of each motif found in the background target sequences.

To avoid infinity as a value for fold change, 1 was added to number of occurences of each motif found in the foreground and background target sequences before the normalization.

n

An integer specifying the number of motifs cutoff. E.g. if 3 is specifiyed only motifs that are found at least 3 times in the foreground or background target sequences are retained. Deafaut value is 0.

removeNegLog2FC

A logical specifying whether to remove the RBPs having a negative log2FC. If TRUE then only positive log2FC will be visualized. Default value is FALSE.

nf1

An integer specifying the normalization factor for the first data frame mergedMotifsFTS. The occurrences of each motif plus 1 are divided by nf1. The normalized values are then used for fold-change calculation. Set this to the number or length of target sequences (e.g from detected back-spliced junctions) where the motifs were extracted from. Default value is 1.

nf2

An integer specifying the normalization factor for the second data frame mergedMotifsBTS. The occurrences of each motif plus 1 are divided by nf2. The The normalized values are then used for fold-change calculation. Set this to the number of target sequences (e.g from random back-spliced junctions) where the motifs were extracted from. Default value is 1.

NOTE: If nf1 and nf2 is set equals to 1, the number or length of target sequences (e.g detected Vs randomly selected) where the motifs were extrated from, is supposed to be the same.

df1Name

A string specifying the name of the first data frame. This will be displayed in the legend of the plot. Deafult value is "foreground".

df2Name

A string specifying the name of the first data frame. This will be displayed in the legend of the plot. Deafult value is "background".

angle

An integer specifying the rotation angle of the axis labels. Default value is 0.

Value

A ggplot object.
