View source: R/functions_comp2annot.R

Description

Given a variable of the phenotype data (i.e vector of sample annotations), this function tests if the groups of samples formed by this variable are differently distributed on the components, in terms of contribution values. The distribution of the groups on the components are represented using density plots. It is possible to restrict the tests and the plots to a subset of samples and/or components.

  plotDensOneAnnotInAllComp(icaSet, keepVar, path = NULL,
    samples, keepComp, keepLev = NULL, colours = NULL,
    legend.title = NULL, doPlot = TRUE, cutoff = 0.05,
    onlySign = TRUE, resTests)

Arguments

icaSet

an object of class IcaSet

keepVar

a variable label, i.e the label of a column of the pheno data of icaSet available in (varLabels(icaSet)) wich contains the groups of interest

path

the directory where the plots will be located

samples

a subset of sample names available in samplenames(icaSet), if NULL (default) all samples are used

keepComp

a subset of components available in indComp(icaSet), if NULL (default) all components are used

keepLev

the groups of interest, i.e the levels of the annotation keepVar to be considered

colours

A vector of colours indexed by the elements of keepLev, if NULL the colours are generated automatically using annot2Color

legend.title

title of the legend

cutoff

The threshold p-value for statistical significance

doPlot

if TRUE (default), the plots are drawn, else if FALSE only test results are returned

onlySign

if TRUE (default), only the significant results are plotted

resTests

a vector of p-values per component, if NULL (default) the p-values are calculated using Wilcoxon or Kruskal-Wallis test

Details

Wilcoxon or Kruskal-Wallis tests are applied depending on the number of groups of interest from the considered annotation (argument keepLev). The plots are saved in individual files (one file per component) in arg 'path' if specified or in the current directory if not specificied. Ech individual file is nameb 'index-of-component_colAnnot.png.' Recall that the sample-contribution values are contained in A(icaSet), and the sample annotations in pData(icaSet).

One png image is created by plot and located in path. Each image is named by 'index-of-component_keepVar.png'.

Value

Returns a data.frame of dimensions 'components x 1' containing the results of the non-parametric tests (Wilcoxon or Kruskal-Wallis tests) that test if the groups of interest are differently distributed on the components
