Description

Plot of similarity matrix based on MAD between microarrays.

Usage

1
2
madPlot(x, new = FALSE, col, maxMAD = 3, labels = FALSE, 
        labcols = "black", title = "", protocol = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

x

data or correlation matrix, respectively

new

If new=FALSE, x must already be a matrix with MAD values. If new=TRUE, the MAD matrix for the columns of x is computed and displayed in the image.

col

colors palette for image. If missing, the RdYlGn palette of RColorBrewer is used.

maxMAD

maximum MAD value displayed

labels

vector of character strings to be placed at the tickpoints, labels for the columns of x.

labcols

colors to be used for the labels of the columns of x. labcols can have either length 1, in which case all the labels are displayed using the same color, or the same length as labels, in which case a color is specified for the label of each column of x.

title

character string, overall title for the plot.

protocol

logical, display color bar without numbers

...

graphical parameters may also be supplied as arguments to the function (see par). For comparison purposes, it is good to set zlim=c(-1,1).

Details

This functions generates the so called similarity matrix (based on MAD) for a microarray experiment; cf. Buness et. al. (2004). The function is similar to corPlot.

Note

A first version of this function appeared in package SLmisc.

## only a dummy example
set.seed(13)
x <- matrix(rnorm(1000), ncol = 10)
x[1:20,5] <- x[1:20,5] + 10
madPlot(x, new = TRUE, maxMAD = 2.5)
## in contrast
corPlot(x, new = TRUE, minCor = -0.5)
