ggmuller

Create Muller Plots of Evolutionary Dynamics

Installation

To install the CRAN version:

install(ggmuller)
library(ggmuller)

To install the github version using devtools:

install.packages("devtools")
library(devtools)
  
install_github("robjohnnoble/ggmuller")
library(ggmuller)

Basic usage

The main functions in ggmuller are get_Muller_df and Muller_plot, which we can run on some data included in the package:

# reformat data ready for plotting:
Muller_df <- get_Muller_df(example_edges, example_pop_df)

# generate the plot:
Muller_plot(Muller_df)

How-to guides

The best place to start is the CRAN vignette, which includes an overview of features and some worked examples.

An older, slightly different set of instructions can be found in a blog post on Visualizing evolutionary dynamics with ggmuller.

Version history

0.5.1: Can use brewer palettes.

0.5: Smoother plots from sparse data; time column can now be called “Time” instead of “Generation”; replace missing population sizes with zeroes.

0.4: Smoother plotting by default when genotypes suddenly grow from zero to large frequencies; new “start_positions” parameter can be used to override this default.

0.3: Bug fixes; in particular, the “threshold” option is replaced by “cutoff” (genotypes whose abundance never exceeds “cutoff” are removed, whereas previously genotypes whose abundance never exceeded twice “threshold” were removed).

0.2.2: Bug fixes and deprecation of superfluous options.

0.2.1: Correct mistake in calculating population sizes for Muller_pop_plot.

0.2.0: New function Muller_pop_plot shows variation in population size as well as frequency (also known as a fish plot).

0.1.3: Compatibility with dplyr version 0.7.2; add option for smoother plotting of genotype emergence points.

0.1.2: Better plotting of the points at which genotypes emerge.

0.1.1: Essential update for compatibility with ggplot2 version 2.2.0.

0.1.0: First release.
