In this graph 81 cells have being ordered by pseudo time. For example cell s0.76 has been placed at the start of pseudo time and cell s0.11 placed at the end of pseudo time.

This is the expression profile of this gene on this pseudo time

Now, my question is, how I could color the plot by knowing a set of cells are in G2 and another set are in S/M phase of cell cycle like this picture?

enter image description here

These cells are at G2

[1] "s0.1"  "s0.2"  "s0.3"  "s0.6"  "s0.7"  "s0.8"  "s0.9"  "s0.10" "s0.12" "s0.13" "s0.14" "s0.15" "s0.16" "s0.19" "s0.21" "s0.22" "s0.23" "s0.24" "s0.25" "s0.28" "s0.29" "s0.31"
[23] "s0.32" "s0.34" "s0.35" "s0.37" "s0.38" "s0.39" "s0.42" "s0.43" "s0.44" "s0.48" "s0.50" "s0.51" "s0.54" "s0.55" "s0.56" "s0.59" "s0.60" "s0.61" "s0.62" "s0.63" "s0.64" "s0.65"
[45] "s0.66" "s0.67" "s0.68" "s0.70" "s0.71" "s0.73" "s0.78" "s0.79" "s0.80" "s0.81"

these cells are in M/S

 [1] "s0.4"  "s0.5"  "s0.11" "s0.17" "s0.18" "s0.20" "s0.26" "s0.27" "s0.30" "s0.33" "s0.36" "s0.40" "s0.41" "s0.45" "s0.46" "s0.47" "s0.49" "s0.52" "s0.53" "s0.57" "s0.58" "s0.69"
[23] "s0.72" "s0.74" "s0.75" "s0.76" "s0.77"

I tried to do that by this codes but the order of cells is not based on the pseudo time

> head(data)
         value  cell capture
1  30.59486 s0.76      G2
2  78.12876 s0.52      G2
3  63.36236 s0.72      G2
4  54.48303 s0.36     m/s
5 196.49463 s0.18     m/s
6  59.76789 s0.60      G2

enter image description here

> p=ggplot(data, aes(x=cell, y=value, color=capture))
> p+geom_point(alpha=.3)

Just a few observations that I wish to share with you:

  • Your question was extremely specific and generic at the same time. You could have searched Stack Overflow for color scatter plot by attribute and you'd have gotten the answer with a tiny bit of digging. All of the context you provided in the post is of little value to users here, as the context is singular to your use case. You should work on providing a simple, reproducible example with dummy data, not the details of your actual context.

  • This leads to the second point. When your question and answer are within an hour of each other, you're using us as a shortcut and not really contributing to the knowledge content of the site. And this behavior was also seen in your previous account. I strongly recommend you try harder before you post here, and when you do create a post, have the post be reproducible and valuable as a knowledge item.

Thank you!

You definitely you alright. Honestly, biostars is always my bests way of documentation for solutions for similar questions in future because I would always refer to my posts in near future. But believe me I am posting my question firstly here as I don't have any hope that I would find the solution myself and most of time I have to find the solution in a defined short time frame. So I post my question here and I am going to find the solution myself. In 90% of my posts I can not find the solution myself and here biostars solve the problem. Only one point, I am not mis using this website at all, at least not intentionally.

You are off course welcome to ask your questions here. But as Ram said, this one wasn't too hard and could have been solved easily. It is no use to be stuck on a problem for days, but spending a few hours is not wrong. Quite the contrary: every next question you'll have to solve will be easier because you learned how to figure things out.

Can you edit your question and answer to make them a bit more generic, as Ram suggested? As such more users in the future will be helped by stumbling upon this question in their own journey.
