So when I plotted some of my data in bar graphs, as expected the y-axis starts from 0 and goes up. However, I was wondering if there's a way to set a new 'zero' for the axis? As in instead of zero, the axis uses a different number as the x-y crossing.
For example, my bar graphs actually are gene expression folds and the value 1.0 is the normal control. So say a graph is 0.5, it would be nice to show the bar going down from 1.0 instead of going up from 0. Is there a possible way to do this? I couldn't find this option in the y-axis settings.
I don't know of doing exactly what you're asking with just preferences. You could just make a :data - control_value column and plot the deltas. It will still be centered at zero but you might get the look you want. You could then overwrite the 0 label with a reference line to make it seem like 0 isn't there.
