Reads the ion data (.dac/.dat) files for the given LANS analysis folder and returns the ROIs data in a concatenated data frame with identifier columns 'ROI' and 'variable' (=ions). Note that this only reads ion data files by default and not any derived data files (any ratio or other formulas evaluated by LANS). If zstacks (i.e. individual planes) are exported from LANS, they can be loaded as well (and are by default). The resulting data frame has a 'plane' column that keeps track of the plane, the value 'all' identifies the combined data for the ROI from all planes.
read_roi_data( dat_folder, ion_data_only = TRUE, load_zstacks = TRUE, quiet = FALSE )
- the LANS dat directory with the ions' .dac files
- by default TRUE, i.e. ignores all non-ion data files
- whether to load any z_stacks found, by default TRUE
- whether to report information on the loaded data or not
concatenated data_frame with all the ROIs' data, with identifier columns 'plane', 'ROI' and 'variable'
