Dear all

I got the volcano plot of deseq2 output with this code :

 with(res, plot(log2FoldChange, -log10(pvalue), pch=20, main="Volcano plot", xlim=c(-8,8)))
with(subset(res, padj<0.1 ), points(log2FoldChange, -log10(pvalue), pch=20, col="red"))
with(subset(res, abs(log2FoldChange)>1), points(log2FoldChange, -log10(pvalue), pch=20, col="orange"))
 with(subset(res, padj<0.1 & abs(log2FoldChange)>1), points(log2FoldChange, -log10(pvalue), pch=20, col="green"))
with(subset(res, padj<0.1 & abs(log2FoldChange)>1), textxy(log2FoldChange, -log10(pvalue), labs=Geneid, cex=.8))

but I want add the cut off lines (padj and log2FoldChange) to the plot, any help for the code?

I respectfully disagree - where there are other ways to learn about the abline() function, this looks like a perfectly appropriate question for Biostars.
