# [R] Plotting n a scale up to 6 decimal places

Dear All,

I am trying to plot some element of the below lists which contains 10,000 rows. For instance lfdr_true on x-axis vs hi and and I also include estimates as points on the plot.

However, as you can notice the real difference comes in the later decimal places and not in the first 2 to 3 decimal places. Can someone suggest how to expand the scale to 6 places of decimals?

``` gene     lower                hi               estimate   covered
lfdr_true
1            0                0.9999962      0.9913568    TRUE
0.9564683
2            0                0.9999999      0.9965426    TRUE
0.9184360
3            0                0.9999997      0.9941567    TRUE
0.9783095
4            0                0.9999990      0.9949874    TRUE
0.9342528
5            0                0.9999971      0.9943081    TRUE
0.9053046
6            0                0.9999921      0.9854756    TRUE
```
0.9927538

Following is the format of code I am using after extracting some values from list:
x1<-min(lfdr.true)
x2<-max(lfdr.true)
plot(lfdr.true, original.estimate, pch=19, col = "dark red",xlim = c(x1,x2)) points(upper.limit, pch=24, col = "dark green")

However, it doesn't help in differentiating the points I am plotting as they are so close upto first two decimal places.

I would really appreciate any suggestions or comments. Thank you.
Best Regards,
Tasneem
