TRONCO 2.37.0

TRONCO provides functions to plot a model, access information about the probabilities used to extract it from data, and two types of confidence measures: those used to infer the model, and those computed a posteriori from it.

Function `view`

provides updated information about a model if this is available.

`view(model.capri)`

```

We can plot a model by using function . Here, we plot the aCML model inferred by CAPRI with BIC and AIC as a regolarizator. We set some parameters to get a nice plot (scaling etc.), and distinguish the edges detected by the two regularization techniques. The confidence of each edge is shown in terms of temporal priority and probability raising (selective advantage scores) and hypergeometric testing (statistical relevance of the dataset of input). Events are annotated as in the oncoprint, edge p-values above a minium threshold (default 0.05) are red.
