Example - Plotting timetraces with bursts

This notebook is part of smFRET burst analysis software FRETBursts.

In this notebook shows how to plot timetraces with burst information. For a complete tutorial on burst analysis see FRETBursts - us-ALEX smFRET burst analysis.

Plot Timetraces

Default plot:

In [5]:
dplot(dsf, timetrace, tmin=0, tmax=1, bursts=True);

We can plot a longer figure that scrolls horizontally in the notebook:

In [6]:
fig, ax = plt.subplots(figsize=(32, 3))
dplot(dsf, timetrace, tmin=0, tmax=3, binwidth=0.5e-3, bursts=True, 
      ax=ax, plot_style=dict(lw=0.7))
plt.xlim(0, 3)

Using the previous plot we can sample different times of the measurement to have an overview of the timetrace:

In [7]:
dx = dsf
num_time_points = 6
window = 3
kws = dict(figsize=(32, 3), bursts=True, binwidth=0.5e-3, 

# Timepoints equally distributed along the measurement
time_points = np.round(np.linspace(dx.time_min+1, dx.time_max-window-1, num=num_time_points))

for i in time_points:
    ax = dplot(dx, timetrace, tmin=i, tmax=i+window, **kws);
    plt.xlim(i, i+window)
