Welcome to the new bioconductor.org!


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

Heatmaps with row and/or column covariates and colored clusters

Bioconductor version: Development (3.19)

Display a rectangular heatmap (intensity plot) of a data matrix. By default, both samples (columns) and features (row) of the matrix are sorted according to a hierarchical clustering, and the corresponding dendrogram is plotted. Optionally, panels with additional information about samples and features can be added to the plot.
