Plots a principal component analysis based on peptide or precursor intensities.

Arguments

data

a data frame that contains sample names, peptide or precursor identifiers, corresponding intensities and a condition column indicating e.g. the treatment.

sample

a character column in the data data frame that contains the sample name.

grouping

a character column in the data data frame that contains either precursor or peptide identifiers.

intensity

a numeric column in the data data frame that contains the corresponding intensity values for each peptide or precursor.

condition

a column in the data data frame that contains condition information (e.g. "treated" and "control").

components

a character vector indicating the two components that should be displayed in the plot. By default these are PC1 and PC2. You can provide these using a character vector of the form c("PC1", "PC2").

digestion

optional, a character column in the data data frame that indicates the mode of digestion (limited proteolysis or tryptic digest). Alternatively, any other variable by which the data should be split can be provided.

plot_style

a character value that specifies what plot should be returned. If plot_style = "pca" is selected the two PCA components supplied with the components argument are plottet against each other. This is the default. plot_style = "scree" returns a scree plot that displays the variance explained by each principal component in percent. The scree is useful for checking if any other than the default first two components should be plotted.

Value

A principal component analysis plot showing PC1 and PC2. If plot_style = "scree", a scree plot for all dimensions is returned.

Examples

set.seed(123) # Makes example reproducible # Create example data data <- create_synthetic_data( n_proteins = 100, frac_change = 0.05, n_replicates = 3, n_conditions = 2, ) # Plot scree plot qc_pca( data = data, sample = sample, grouping = peptide, intensity = peptide_intensity_missing, condition = condition, plot_style = "scree" )
# Plot principal components qc_pca( data = data, sample = sample, grouping = peptide, intensity = peptide_intensity_missing, condition = condition )
