volcanoplot: Volcano Plot

Description

Creates a volcano plot of log-fold changes versus log-odds of differential expression.

Usage

volcanoplot(fit, coef=1, highlight=0, names=fit$genes$ID, xlab="Log Fold Change", ylab="Log Odds", pch=16, cex=0.35, ...)

Arguments

fit
an MArrayLM fitted linear model object
coef
integer giving the coefficient
highlight
number of top genes to be highlighted
names
character vector giving text labels for the probes to be used in highlighting
xlab
character string giving label for x-axis
ylab
character string giving label for y-axis
pch
vector or list of plotting characters. Default is integer code 16 which gives a solid circle.
cex
numeric vector of plot symbol expansions. Default is 0.35.
...
any other arguments are passed to plot

Value

Details

A volcano plot is any plot which displays fold changes versus a measure of statistical significance of the change.
