Hello,
Maybe this iss what you're looking for. GD is your data.frame.
multi.boxplot <- function(x, by, ...){
x <- as.data.frame(x)
sp <- split(x, by)
len <- length(sp) - 1
n <- ncol(x)
n1 <- n + 1
boxplot(x[[ 1 ]] ~ by, at = 0:len*n1 + 1,
xlim = c(0, (len + 1)*n1), ylim = range(unlist(x)), xaxt = "n", ...)
for(i in seq_len(n)[-1])
boxplot(x[[i]] ~ by, at = 0:len*n1 + i, xaxt = "n", add = TRUE, ...)
axis(1, at = 0:len*n1 + n1/2, labels = names(sp), tick = TRUE)
}
cols <- grep("ReadCount", names(GD))
multi.boxplot(GD[, cols], cut(GD$GeneDensity, breaks=10))
If this is it and you don't like those x-axis tick lables, use
as.integer(cut(...etc...)).
Hope this helps,
