xEnrichDAGplotAdvR Documentation

Function to visualise comparative enrichment results using a direct acyclic graph (DAG)


xEnrichDAGplotAdv is supposed to visualise the comparative enrichment results (see the function xEnrichCompare)) using a direct acyclic graph (DAG). Nodes/terms can be colored according to how many times being called significant. If two enrichment results are compared, node names are prefixed with the form of 'x1-x2', where x1 is for result 1 and x2 for result 2 (the value for x1 or x2 can be '0' for being insignificant, and '1' for being significant). It takes input an 'ggplot' object (with two componets alreadly appended 'g' and 'data'), and returns an object of class 'Ragraph'.

an object "ggplot" (resulting from xEnrichCompare)


which statistics will be used for displaying. It can be "nSig" for how many times being called significant (by default), "none" for no color-coding on nodes/terms


the mode of paths induced by nodes in query. It can be "all_paths" for all possible paths to the root, "shortest_paths" for only one path to the root (for each node in query), "all_shortest_paths" for all shortest paths to the root (i.e. for each node, find all shortest paths with the equal lengths)


a numeric value specifying the height of device


a numeric value specifying the width of device


margins as units of length 4 or 1


short name for the colormap. It can be one of "jet" (jet colormap), "bwr" (blue-white-red colormap), "gbr" (green-black-red colormap), "wyr" (white-yellow-red colormap), "br" (black-red colormap), "yr" (yellow-red colormap), "wb" (white-black colormap), and "rainbow" (rainbow colormap, that is, red-yellow-green-cyan-blue-magenta). Alternatively, any hyphen-separated HTML color names, e.g. "lightyellow-orange" (by default), "blue-black-yellow", "royalblue-white-sandybrown", "darkgreen-white-darkviolet". A list of standard color names can be found in http://html-color-codes.info/color-names


the number of colors specified over the colormap


the minimum and maximum z/data values for which colors should be plotted, defaulting to the range of the finite values of z. Each of the given colors will be used to color an equispaced interval of this range. The midpoints of the intervals cover the range, so that values just outside the range will be plotted


logical to indicate whether to append a colorbar. If data is null, it always sets to false


the relative fraction of colorbar block against the device size


logical to indicate whether to open a new page. By default, it sets to true for opening a new page


the orientation of the DAG layout. It can be one of "left_right" for the left-right layout (viewed from the DAG root point), "top_bottom" for the top-bottom layout, "bottom_top" for the bottom-top layout, and "right_left" for the right-left layout


tells the ontology term information used to label nodes. It can be "term_id" for using Term ID, "term_name" for using Term Name, 'none' for no labellings


a positive integer specifying wrap width of Term Name


a list of global node attributes. These node attributes will be changed globally. See 'Note' below for details on the attributes


a list of global edge attributes. These edge attributes will be changed globally. See 'Note' below for details on the attributes


a list of local edge attributes. These node attributes will be changed locally; as such, for each attribute, the input value must be a named vector (i.e. using Term ID as names). See 'Note' below for details on the attributes


An object of class 'Ragraph'


A list of global node attributes used in "graph.node.attrs":

A list of global edge attributes used in "graph.edge.attrs":

A list of local node attributes used in "node.attrs" (only those named Term IDs will be changed locally!):
