The goal of MetabolomicsBasics is to provide a set of functions to investigate raw data (a matrix of intensity values) from (metabol)omics experiments, i.e.  following peak picking and signal deconvolution. Functions can be used to i.e.:

A detailed description of best practice usage may be found in the publication


You can install the development version of MetabolomicsBasics from GitHub with:

# install.packages("devtools")


A typical use case would be to compute a Principal Component Analysis:

raw <- MetabolomicsBasics::raw
sam <- MetabolomicsBasics::sam
MetabolomicsBasics::RestrictedPCA(dat = raw, sam = sam, group.col = "Group", legend.x = "bottomleft", medsd = TRUE, fmod = "Group")

More elaborate plots, like the polar coordinate visualization of heterosis pattern are possible:

x <- t(raw)
colnames(x) <- sam$GT
MetabolomicsBasics::PolarCoordHeterPlot(x=x, gt=c("B73","B73xMo17","Mo17"), plot_lab="graph", col=1:10, thr=0.5, rev_log=exp(1))
#> Parameter 'col' should be a color vector of length nrow(x)
