Using the RExpression Actor in Kepler Workflows

  • RExpression actors with

  • customized R scripts and input/output ports can

  • be saved and imported into Kepler actor list

  • Examples of some custom actors are shown here.

  • Provides tools for

  • users that are unfamiliar

  • with R scripts

  • RExpression actor executes ‘R’ scripts for data manipulation, statistical calculations, and graphics creation

  • Like the Expression actor, input ports are added with names that are used for input variables in the R script

  • Multiple output ports can be added with names matching R script parameter names

  • RExpression actors are especially useful for:

  • Reading & manipulating tabular data (data.frames)

    • sorting

    • subselections

    • reformatting

  • Performing many different statistical operations

  • RExpression actors can create a variety of graphs, plots, and visual displays

  • R creates pdf or png files; file name is supplied on RExpression output port
