Manhattan plot function for results of multiHiCcompare


Manhattan plot function for results of multiHiCcompare


  pval_aggregate = "standard",
  return_df = FALSE,
  p.adj_cutoff = 0.05,
  plot.chr = NA



A hicexp object that has had differences detected


string denoting the p-value method to use for plotting. Options are "standard", "fisher", "lancaster", "sidak", and "count". "standard" plots a manhattan plot using all individual p-values (very slow, use with caution). "fisher", "lancaster", or "sidak" methods use the Fisher's, Lancaster, or the Sidak method, respectively, for combining p-values for each region which are then plotted on the -log10(p-value) Y-axis. "count" summarizes the number of times a region was detected as significant (see "p.adj_cutoff" parameter), plotted on Y-axis. The higher the dots are, the more significant/more frequent a region was detected as significantly differentially interacting. See ?topDirs


Logical, should the data.frame used to generate the plot be returned?


The adjusted p-value cutoff to be used for calling an interaction significant. This is only used if method = 'count'. Defaults to 0.05.


A numeric value indicating a specific chromosome number to subset the plot to. Defaults to NA indicating that all chromosomes will be plotted.


This function is used to create a manhattan plot for the significance of all genomic regions in the dataset. These correspond to the rows (or columns) of the upper triangle of the full Hi-C matrix. Each genomic region of the Hi-C dataset has multiple interactions it is involved in and the significance of all of these can be visualized with pval_aggregate = "standard". Alternatively the p-values for all these interactions can be combined using either Fisher's, or the Lancaster or the Sidac method of combining p-values. Additionally the "count" option will plot based on the number of times each region was found to be involved in a signficantly different interaction. The manhattan plot can be used to identify "hotspot" regions of the genome where major differences seem to be located based on the results of a multiHiCcompare analysis.


A manhattan plot and optionally the data.frame used to generate the manhattan plot.
