dia.bactgensize: Distribution of bacterial genome size from GOLD

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/dia.bactgensize.R

Description

This function tries to download the last update of the GOLD (Genomes OnLine Database) to extract bacterial genomes sizes when available. The histogram and the default density() output is produced. Optionally, a maximum likelihood estimate of a superposition of two or three normal distributions is also represented.

Arguments

fit

integer value. If fit == O no normal fit is produced, if fit == 2 try to fit a superposition of two normal distributions, if fit == 3 try to fit a superposition of three normal distributions.

p

initial guess for the proportion of the first population.

m1

initial guess for the mean of the first population.

sd1

initial guess for the standard deviation of the first population.

m2

initial guess for the mean of the second population.

sd2

initial guess for the standard deviation of the second population.

p3

initial guess for the proportion of the third population.

m3

initial guess for the mean of the third population.

sd3

initial guess for the standard deviation of the third population.

maxgensize

maximum admissive value in bp for a bacterial genome size: only value less or equal to this threshold are considrered.

source

the file with raw data. By default a local (outdated) copy is used.

Value

An invisible dataframe with three components:

genus

genus name

species

species names

gs

genome size in Kb
