Plot Smoothed Sense/Anti-sense of Specified Chromosomes


For a given chromosome, plot the smooths of the sense and the anti-sense from 5' to 3' (left to right on x-axis).


plotChr(chrN, senseObj, cols = rep("blue", length(senseObj[[1]])), log = FALSE, xloc = c("equispaced", "physical"), geneSymbols = FALSE, ngenes = 20, = NULL, lines.col = "red")


chrN The desired chromosome, e.g. for humans it would be a character string in the set of c(1:22, "X", "Y").
senseObj The result of Makesense.
cols A vector of colors for the lines in the plot, typically specified according to a certain pheotype of samples.
log Logical, whether log-transformation should be taken on the smoothed expressions.
xloc Determines whether the "Representative Genes" will be displayed according to their relative positions on the chromosome (physical), or spaced evenly (equispaced). Default is equispaced.
geneSymbols Logical, whether to use Affy IDs or Gene Symbols for "Representative Genes", default is Affy IDs.
ngenes Desired number of "Representative Genes". The number of actual displayed genes may differ. A vector of Affy IDs. Vertical lines will be drawn at specified genes.
lines.col A vector of colors associated with
