plotMetaResults: Deviation Plots for Meta Results

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Note

Description

Generate a few visual assessments of Meta Results variance among the DE tools

Usage

1
2
plotMetaResults(file, columnNames = c("RoundRobin", "RankProduct", "SAM", "EdgeR", "DESeq"), 
		columnColors = rainbow(length(columnNames), end = 0.72), label = "")

Arguments

file

Full path name to an existing file containing a meta results or meta rank table

columnNames

Character vector of column names to use in meta results assessment

columnColors

colors for each column

label

Optional text to append to plot top legend

Details

This function assesses the variance between each DE tools call for gene rankings against the consensus result, and then presents the data visually in a few plot styles.

Value

Plot files are written to the current directory.

Note

In the line plot image, we expect a 'fish' shaped result, where all tools agree somewhat about the most up-regulated and down-regulated genes but have higher variance for the non differentially expressed genes in the middle of the file.
