Hi there,

I'm following along on the rnaseqGene tutorial using the fission package, and I was wondering why the x axis on the time course experiment in section 9 is categorical (that is, time 1-6) rather than in minutes.

http://master.bioconductor.org/packages/release/workflows/vignettes/rnaseqGene/inst/doc/rnaseqGene.html#time-course-experiments

I suppose it doesn't really make a difference, however, i think it does make the graph look like the time points were evenly spaced, which is not the case.

Is there a way to display it with the actual minutes? I tried converting the minutes to numbers:

fiss$minute <- as.character(as.numeric(fiss$minute))
ggplot(fiss,
+   aes(x = minute, y = count, color = strain, group = strain)) +
+   geom_point()


But this doesn't really work, the times are still treated as discrete categories.

Thanks!
