However, the exons listed in the x-axis show up by increasing order of padj, e.g. E025 E020 E010 E005 E006 E017 etc, being E025 the exon with the lowest padj. How can I re-order the x-axis so that the exons are listed in order, by their positions? Thank you!

Did you by chance modified the order of the results table? Could you send me a reproducible example to generate the plot that you mentioned as well as the output of your sessionInfo()? Alejandro

When I do: > dxr = DEXSeqResults( dxd ) > plotDEXSeq(dxr, gene) then the exons in the plot are ordered by their positions, i.e E001 E002 E003 etc. When I do: > dxr = DEXSeqResults( dxd ) > dxr = dxr[order(dxr\$padj),] > plotDEXSeq(dxr, gene) then the exons in the plot are ordered by increasing order of padj, e.g. E025 E020 E010 E005 E006 etc. My issue is now solved. Anyway, I think it would be nicer if reordering the object DEXSeqResults did not affect the order of the exons in the plot. Thanks again for your attention!

I think I agree with you and I will fix this issue! Thanks for noticing it!
