The heatmap tool creates a heatmap of the gene list and sample selection.
On page load, a heatmap is created with default settings. There are options to change the distance measure and clustering methods, turn dendrogram/clustering on and off for samples and genes (by default, only genes are clustered).
Example work flow:
- Add genes to the genelist.
- Go to exHeatmap to create a heatmap.
- Select which dimensions to cluster and display dendrogram for: samples (x-axis) and/or genes (y-axis).
- Select cluster function and distance methods.
There are currently two expression tables in our database for PopGenIE (All affymetrix or Asp201 Expression Atlas) and one each for ATGenIE and ConGenIE.
