Description

MDPlot produces a mean-difference smooth scatterplot of two lanes in an experiment.

Usage

1
MDPlot(x,y,...)

Arguments

x

Either a numeric matrix or a SeqExpressionSet object containing the gene expression.

y

A numeric vecor specifying the lanes to be compared.

Details

The mean-difference (MD) plot is a useful plot to visualize difference in two lanes of an experiment. From a MDPlot one can see if normalization is needed and if a linear scaling is sufficient or nonlinear normalization is more effective.

The MDPlot also plots a lowess fit (in red) underlying a possible trend in the bias related to the mean expression.
