Description Usage Arguments Details See Also Examples

Description

Shift the location of a gate associated with a node of a GatingHierarchy or GatingSet. This method is a wrapper for shift_gate that enables updating of the gate associated with a node of a GatingHierarchy or GatingSet.

shift_gate calls gs_pop_set_gate to modify the provided GatingHierarchy or GatingSet directly so there is no need to re-assign its output. The arguments will be essentially identical to the flowCore method, except for the specification of the target gate. Rather than being called on an object of type flowCore::filter, here it is called on a GatingHierarchy or GatingSet object with an additional character argument for specifying the node whose gate should be transformed. The rest of the details below are taken from the flowCore documentation.

## S3 method for class 'GatingHierarchy'
shift_gate(obj, y, dx = NULL, dy = NULL, center = NULL, ...)

Arguments

obj

A GatingHierarchy or GatingSet object

y

A character specifying the node whose gate should be modified

dx

Either a numeric scalar or numeric vector. If it is scalar, this is just the desired shift of the gate in its first dimension. If it is a vector, it specifies both dx and dy as (dx,dy). This provides an alternate syntax for shifting gates, as well as allowing shifts of ellipsoidGate objects in more than 2 dimensions.

dy

A numeric scalar specifying the desired shift of the gate in its second dimension.

center

A numeric vector specifying where the center or centroid should be moved (rather than specifiying dx and/or dy)

Details

This method allows for geometric translation of filter types defined by simple geometric gates (rectangleGate, quadGate, ellipsoidGate, or polygonGate). The method provides two approaches to specify a translation. For rectangleGate objects, this will shift the min and max bounds by the same amount in each specified dimension. For quadGate objects, this will simply shift the divinding boundary in each dimension. For ellipsoidGate objects, this will shift the center (and therefore all points of the ellipse). For polgonGate objects, this will simply shift all of the points defining the polygon.

The method allows two different approaches to shifting a gate. Through the dx and/or dy arguments, a direct shift in each dimension can be provided. Alternatively, through the center argument, the gate can be directly moved to a new location in relation to the old center of the gate. For quadGate objects, this center is the intersection of the two dividing boundaries (so the value of the boundary slot). For rectangleGate objects, this is the center of the rectangle defined by the intersections of the centers of each interval. For ellipsoidGate objects, it is the center of the ellipsoid, given by the mean slot. For polygonGate objects, the centroid of the old polygon will be calculated and shifted to the new location provided by center and all other points on the polygon will be shifted by relation to the centroid.
