Welcome to the new bioconductor.org!


This is the development version of ChromHeatMap; for the stable release version, see ChromHeatMap.

Heat map plotting by genome coordinate

Bioconductor version: Development (3.19)

The ChromHeatMap package can be used to plot genome-wide data (e.g. expression, CGH, SNP) along each strand of a given chromosome as a heat map. The generated heat map can be used to interactively identify probes and genes of interest.
