Heat maps are a powerful way to visualize expression matrix data. Clustergrammer is a free visualization service and open source project provided by the Ma'ayan Lab at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. A heat map for data from runs in Panorama can be generated using the free web service version of Clustergrammer.

Generate a Clustergrammer Heat Map

  • Navigate to the Panorama runs list of interest.
  • Select the runs of interest and click Clustergrammer Heatmap.
  • Adjust the auto-generated title and description if desired, or accept the defaults.
  • Click Save.
  • You'll be asked to confirm that you consent to publish the information to Clustergrammer. Clustergrammer is a third-party service, so all data sent will be publicly accessible. Click Yes if you wish to continue.
  • The heat map will be generated and shown; depending on your run content, it might look something like this:

When you generate a Clustergrammer heat map, the server auto-generates a Link Report giving you a way to access it later. To see the link report, add a Data Views web part:

  • Enter > Page Admin Mode.
  • Select Data Views from the Add Web Part dropdown in the lower left.
  • Click Add.
  • Click Exit Admin Mode.
