maImage.func {marray}R Documentation

Color image for cDNA microarray spot statistics

Description

This function creates spatial images of shades of gray or colors that correspond to the values of a statistic for each spot on the array. The statistic can be the intensity log-ratio M, a spot quality measure (e.g. spot size or shape), or a test statistic. This function can be used to explore whether there are any spatial effects in the data, for example, print-tip or cover-slip effects. This function is called by maImage.

Usage

maImage.func(x, L, subset=TRUE, col=heat.colors(12), contours=FALSE, overlay=NULL, ol.col=1,  ...)

Arguments

x A "numeric" vector of spot statistics.
L An object of class "marrayLayout", if L is missing we will assume the dimension of x.
subset A "logical" or "numeric" vector indicating the subset of spots to display on the image.
col A list of colors such as that generated by rainbow, heat.colors, topo.colors, terrain.colors, or similar functions. In addition to these color palette functions, a new function maPalette was defined to generate color palettes from user supplied low, middle, and high color values.
contours If contours=TRUE, contours are plotted, otherwise they are not shown.
overlay A logical vector of spots to be highlighted on the image plots.
ol.col Color of the overlay spots.
... Optional graphical parameters, see par.
