Circadian and Brain State Modulation of Network Hyperexcitability in Alzheimer’s Disease

PMCID: 5956746
PMID: 29780880
DOI: 10.1523/ENEURO.0426-17.2018

[…] Statistical data analysis was performed using R (version 3.2.0) including the “dplyr” () and ggplot2 () packages.Assumptions for parametric tests were tested using Q-Q plots and residual plots. Data transformations or nonparametric tests were used for two-group comparisons in which test assum […]


A Five microRNA Signature for Survival Prognosis in Pancreatic Adenocarcinoma based on TCGA Data

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5955976
PMID: 29769534

[…] nent (CC) and molecular function (MF) terms, and a p-value < 0.05 was regarded as statistically significantly different. To add quantitative molecular information to the GO terms of interest, we used ggplot2 package, which permitted the incorporation of data derived from expression level measurements with those obtained from the functional annotation enrichment analysis. In the KEGG pathways analy […]


Emotional reactivity and perspective taking in individuals with and without severe depressive symptoms

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5956107
PMID: 29769542
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25708-x

[…] nsformation test. After each fit, we excluded any data with residuals that fell 2.5 standard deviations away from the mean and refitted the trimmed models. Results are visualized with the help of the ggplot2 package. Contrasts were coded with dummy coding. […]


Endocytosis mediated siderophore uptake as a strategy for Fe acquisition in diatoms

Sci Adv
PMCID: 5955625

[…] Tara Oceans samples (a robust data set of 30,000 sequences), computed in C++. For the graphical representation, statistical analyses were conducted in R (v 3.1.2) and were plotted using the R package ggplot2 (v 2.1.0) onto a reference National Center for Biotechnology Information diatom tree (). […]


Role of obesity in smoking behaviour: Mendelian randomisation study in UK Biobank

PMCID: 5953237
PMID: 29769355
DOI: 10.1136/bmj.k1767

[…] methods provides more details). The corresponding funnel plots, showing the contribution of the SNP ratio estimates (βGDi/βGPi) to the Mendelian randomisation estimates, were generated by use of the ggplot2 R package (R Project; supplementary methods). Additional sensitivity analyses based on the distribution of SNP ratio estimates (βGDi/βGPi) were performed, namely the weighted median approach a […]


Slow touch targeting CT fibres does not increase prosocial behaviour in economic laboratory tasks

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5955966
PMID: 29769551
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-25601-7

[…] oc Tukey tests for factors were computed with the lsmeans package. Results were supplemented with Bayes Factors, which were computed with the BayesFactor package. Plots were created with the packages ggplot2 and sjPlot in R.Dependent variables were pleasantness and intensity, and for the Repeated Trust Game the return ratio (back−transferinvestment). The return ratio was preferred to the absolute […]
