SAM Plot

Description

Generates a SAM plot for a specified value of Delta.

Usage

  sam.plot2(object, delta, pos.stats = NULL, sig.col = 3, xlim = NULL, 
        ylim = NULL, main = NULL, xlab = NULL, ylab = NULL, pty = "s", 
        lab = c(10, 10, 7), pch = NULL, sig.cex = 1, ...)
     
  plotArguments(pos.stats = NULL, sig.col = 3, xlim = NULL, ylim = NULL,
        main = NULL, xlab = NULL, ylab = NULL, pty = "s", lab = c(10, 10, 7),
        pch = NULL, sig.cex = 1)

Arguments

object an object of class SAM
delta a numeric value specifying the value of Delta for which the SAM plot should be generated
pos.stats an integer between 0 and 2. If pos.stats=1, general information as the number of significant genes and the estimated FDR for the specified value of delta will be plotted in the upper left corner of the plot. If pos.stats=2, these information will be plotted in the lower right corner. If pos.stats=0, no information will be plotted. By default, pos.stats=1 if the expression score d can be both positive and negative, and pos.stats=2 if d can only take positive values
sig.col a specification of the color of the significant genes. If sig.col has length 1, all the points corresponding to significant genes are marked in the color specified by sig.col. If length(sig.col)==2, the down-regulated genes, i.e. the genes with negative expression score d, are marked in the color specified by sig.col[1], and the up-regulated genes, i.e. the genes with positive d, are marked in the color specified by sig.col[2]. For a description of how colors are specified, see ?par
xlim a numeric vector of length 2 specifying the x limits (minimum and maximum) of the plot
ylim a numeric vector of length 2 specifying the y limits of the plot
main a character string naming the main title of the plot
xlab a character string naming the label of the x axis
ylab a character string naming the label of the y axis
pty a character specifying the type of plot region to be used. "s" (default) generates a square plotting region, and "m" the maximal plotting region
lab a numeric vector of length 3 specifying the approximate number of tickmarks on the x axis and on the y axis and the label size
pch either an integer specifying a symbol or a single character to be used as the default in plotting points. For a description of how pch can be specified, see ?par
sig.cex a numerical value giving the amount by which the symbols of the significant genes should be scaled relative to the default
... further graphical parameters. See ?plot.default and ?par

Value

a SAM plot

Note

SAM was deveoped by Tusher et al. (2001).

!!! There is a patent pending for the SAM technology at Stanford University. !!!

Examples

## Not run: 
  # Load the package multtest and the data of Golub et al. (1999)
  # contained in multtest.
  library(multtest)
  data(golub)
  
  # Perform a SAM analysis for the two class unpaired case assuming
  # unequal variances.
  sam.out<-sam(golub,golub.cl,B=100,rand=123)
  
  # Generate a SAM plot for Delta = 2
  sam.plot2(sam.out,2)
  
  # Alternatively way of generating the same SAM plot
  plot(sam.out,2)
  
## End(Not run)
