plotP
SPIA twoway evidence plot
Plots each pathway as a point, using the overrepresentation pvalue, pNDE, and perturbations accumulation pvalue, pPERT, as coordinates. In addition the regions where FDR and FWER adjusted pG values are less than the specified threshold are plotted. The function determines automatically which method (fisher or norminv) was used to combine the two pvalues into pG, and plots the regions described above accordingly.
 Keywords
 methods, nonparametric
Usage
plotP(x,threshold=0.05)
Arguments
 x
 A data frame produced by
spia
function.  threshold
 A numerical value between 0 and 1 to be used as significance threshold in inferring pathway significance.
Details
In this plot each pathway is a point and the coordinates are the log of pNDE (using a hypergeometric model) and the pvalue from perturbations, pPERT. The oblique lines in the plot show the significance regions based on the combined evidence.
Value

This function does not return any value. It only generates a plot.
