Converting an id tag to a Set of Image Coordinates and Vice Versa

Description

The function id2image converts an id tag of a gene supplied by a user into a set of image coordinates regarding the location of the gene being considered. Conversion of image coordinates to an id tag is performed by image2id.

Usage

id2image(X, layout)
image2id(x, layout)

Arguments

X an integer value representing the id of a particular gene
layout
x a vector of 4 integer elements which make up the image coordinates of the gene.

Details

The image coordinates of a gene correspond to the gene's grid row and grid column position within a slide, and the gene's row and column position within a grid.
