getPathLengths {alakazam}R Documentation

Calculate path lengths from the tree root

Description

getPathLengths calculates the unweighted (number of steps) and weighted (distance) path lengths from the root of a lineage tree.

Usage

getPathLengths(graph, root = "Germline", field = NULL, exclude = NULL)

Arguments

graph

igraph object containing an annotated lineage tree.

root

name of the root (germline) node.

field

annotation field to use for exclusion of nodes from step count.

exclude

annotation values specifying which nodes to exclude from step count. If NULL consider all nodes. This does not affect the weighted (distance) path length calculation.

Value

A data.frame with columns:

Examples

# Define example graph
graph <- ExampleTrees[[24]]

# Consider all nodes
getPathLengths(graph, root="Germline")

# Exclude nodes without an isotype annotation from step count
getPathLengths(graph, root="Germline", field="c_call", exclude=NA)
