Scatter-plots for cDNA microarray spot statistics

Description

The function maPlot or plot produces scatter-plots of microarray spot statistics for the classes "marrayRaw", "marrayNorm". It also allows the user to highlight and annotate subsets of points on the plot, and display fitted curves from robust local regression or other smoothing procedures.

Usage

plot.marrayRaw(x, xvar = "maA", yvar = "maM", zvar="maPrintTip", lines.func,text.func,legend.func,...)
plot.marrayNorm(x, xvar = "maA", yvar = "maM", zvar="maPrintTip", lines.func,text.func,legend.func,...)
addText(object, xvar="maA", yvar="maM", subset=NULL, labels=as.character(1:length(subset)), ...)
addPoints(object, xvar="maA", yvar="maM", subset=TRUE, ...)
addLines(object, xvar="maA", yvar="maM", zvar="maPrintTip", subset=TRUE, ...)
## S4 method for signature 'marrayRaw':
text(x, xvar = "maA", yvar = "maM", ...)
## S4 method for signature 'marrayNorm':
text(x, xvar = "maA", yvar = "maM", ...)
## S4 method for signature 'marrayRaw':
lines(x, xvar = "maA", yvar = "maM", ...)
## S4 method for signature 'marrayNorm':
lines(x, xvar = "maA", yvar = "maM", ...)
## S4 method for signature 'marrayRaw':
points(x, xvar = "maA", yvar = "maM", ...)
## S4 method for signature 'marrayNorm':
points(x, xvar = "maA", yvar = "maM", ...)

Arguments

x Microarray object of class "marrayRaw", "marrayNorm".
object Microarray object of class "marrayRaw", "marrayNorm".
xvar Name of accessor function for the abscissa spot statistic, typically a slot name for the microarray object x, such as maA.
yvar Name of accessor function for the ordinate spot statistic, typically a slot name for the microarray object x, such as maM.
zvar Name of accessor method for the spot statistic used to stratify the data, typically a slot name for the microarray layout object (see "marrayLayout") such as maPlate or a method such as maPrintTip. If zvar is NULL, the data are not stratified.
lines.func Function for computing and plotting smoothed fits of y as a function of x, separately within values of zvar, e.g. maLoessLines. If lines.func is NULL, no fitting is performed.
text.func Function for highlighting a subset of points, e.g., maText. If text.func is NULL, no points are highlighted.
legend.func Function for adding a legend to the plot, e.g. maLegendLines. If legend.func is NULL, there is no legend.
subset logical vector or numeric values indicating the subset of points to be plotted.
labels One or more character strings or expressions specifying the text to be written.
... Optional graphical parameters, see par.

Details

This function calls the general function maPlot.func, which is not specific to microarray data. If there are more than one array in the batch, the plot is done for the first array, by default. Default graphical parameters are chosen for convenience using the function maDefaultPar (e.g. color palette, axis labels, plot title) but the user has the option to overwrite these parameters at any point.
