Microarray Density Plot Options

Use this to specify additional options and settings to control the display of the a density plot of microarray data.


Specifies which graphical outputs are to be produced by the analysis.

Histograms of intensity by slide A trellis plot of the histograms of the data variate
Probability density of intensity by slide A plot of the kernel density estimate of the data variate for each slide
Cumulative density of intensity by slide A plot of the observed cumulative probability density of the data variate for each slide.
Use trellis plot for CDFs/PDFs When selected, the PDF/CDF plots per slide will be plotted in with panel layout in a trellis plot, otherwise the plots from each slide will be overlaid on a common plot.
Display key Controls whether to include a key on the graph indicating which CDF represents each slide when graphs are drawn a on single plot for the CDF (not a trellis plot)

Bandwidth for smoothing PDF

The roughness/smoothness of the kernel density estimator can be changed by selecting a specified bandwidth. Increasing this value makes the plots smoother, and decreasing it makes it rougher, but more responsive to the data. The default value of * (missing) lets the menu select the bandwidth.
