I'm using DRIMSeq to do some analysis but I'd like to make my own figures from the results ideally using what they've done as a base.

I'm trying to find how they make their ggplot objects in the function plotProportoins but when I use findMethods('plotProportoins') it ends up with a method dmPlotProportoins.

It says in the manual that it's a ggplot object but I can't seem to find how they make it. Any ideas?

  • $\begingroup$ You can look at the source code of the package and see how they create the object. $\endgroup$ – llrs Nov 23 '17 at 11:16
  • $\begingroup$ What's the best way to do it? findMethods gives me the source code of the function but how can I get the code of the whole package? (sorry if the answer should be obvious) $\endgroup$ – Sethzard Nov 23 '17 at 11:23
  • $\begingroup$ In the tar ball you have the source code of the package. $\endgroup$ – llrs Nov 23 '17 at 11:34

I was curious how they have done it as well, so here expanded @Liopis comment :

wget http://bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/src/contrib/DRIMSeq_1.6.0.tar.gz
tar -zxf DRIMSeq_1.6.0.tar.gz 
# if you need to find it, or use grep
# find DRIMSeq -name "dm_plotProportions.R"
less DRIMSeq/R/dm_plotProportions.R

    $\begingroup$ This is planned to change and be able to look at the code thorough a web interface $\endgroup$ – llrs Nov 23 '17 at 15:26
