The taut string density estimator gating returns 0, 1, or more gates, depending on how many modes it identifies in the data.

tautstring(sorted_vector, modeprior = 0)

gate_tautstring(fr, channel, gate_range = NULL, min = NULL,
  max = NULL, filterId = "")

Arguments

sorted_vector

numeric vector of single cell expresion from a single cytometric channel.

modeprior

numeric scalar specifying the expected number of modes. Default 0 (autodetect). Rarely should this be set by the user.

fr

a flowFrame object

channel

The channel to gate.

gate_range

The range to look for a gate, no truncation occurs.

min

The min range of the data to truncate the flowFrame

max

The max range of the data to truncate the flowFrame

filterId

The id / name of the gate.
