Plot of the repartition of trends per group


Provides a plot of the repartition of dose-response trends per group of items.


trendplot(extendedres, group, facetby, ncol4faceting, add.color = TRUE)



the dataframe of results provided by drcfit (fitres) or bmdcalc (res) or a subset of this data frame (selected lines). This dataframe should be extended with additional columns coming for the group (for example from the functional annotation of items) and/or for another level (for example the molecular level), and some lines can be replicated if their corresponding item has more than one annotation. This extended dataframe must at least contain as results of the dose-response modelling the column giving the trend (trend).


the name of the column of extendedres coding for the groups on which we want to see the repartition of dose-response trends. This column should be a factor ordered as you want the groups to appear in the plot from bottom up.


optional argument naming the column of extendedres chosen to split the plot in facets using ggplot2::facet_wrap (no split if omitted).


number of columns for faceting.


if TRUE a color is added coding for the trend.


a ggplot object.

# (1)

# An example from the paper published by Larras et al. 2020
# in Journal of Hazardous Materials

# the dataframe with metabolomic results 
resfilename <- system.file("extdata", "triclosanSVmetabres.txt", package="DRomics")
res <- read.table(resfilename, header = TRUE, stringsAsFactors = TRUE)

# the dataframe with annotation of each item identified in the previous file
# each item may have more than one annotation (-> more than one line)
annotfilename <- system.file("extdata", "triclosanSVmetabannot.txt", package="DRomics")
annot <- read.table(annotfilename, header = TRUE, stringsAsFactors = TRUE)

# Merging of both previous dataframes
# in order to obtain an extenderes dataframe
extendedres <- merge(x = res, y = annot, by.x = "id", by.y = "metab.code")

# (1.a) Trendplot by pathway
trendplot(extendedres, group = "path_class") 

# (1.b) Trendplot by pathway without color
trendplot(extendedres, group = "path_class", add.color = FALSE) 

# (1.c) Reordering of the groups before plotting
extendedres$path_class <- factor(extendedres$path_class, 
                levels = sort(levels(extendedres$path_class), decreasing = TRUE))
trendplot(extendedres, group = "path_class", add.color = FALSE) 

# (2) 
# An example with two molecular levels
### Rename metabolomic results
metabextendedres <- extendedres

# Import the dataframe with transcriptomic results 
contigresfilename <- system.file("extdata", "triclosanSVcontigres.txt", package = "DRomics")
contigres <- read.table(contigresfilename, header = TRUE, stringsAsFactors = TRUE)

# Import the dataframe with functional annotation (or any other descriptor/category 
# you want to use, here KEGG pathway classes) 
contigannotfilename <- system.file("extdata", "triclosanSVcontigannot.txt", package = "DRomics")
contigannot <- read.table(contigannotfilename, header = TRUE, stringsAsFactors = TRUE)

# Merging of both previous dataframes   
contigextendedres <- merge(x = contigres, y = contigannot, by.x = "id", by.y = "contig")
# to see the structure of this dataframe

### Merge metabolomic and transcriptomic results
extendedres <- rbind(metabextendedres, contigextendedres)
extendedres$molecular.level <- factor(c(rep("metabolites", nrow(metabextendedres)),
                              rep("contigs", nrow(contigextendedres))))

### trend plot of both molecular levels
# optional inverse alphabetic ordering of groups for the plot
extendedres$path_class <- factor(extendedres$path_class, 
                levels = sort(levels(extendedres$path_class), decreasing = TRUE))
trendplot(extendedres, group = "path_class", facetby = "molecular.level")
