H eatmap is one of the must-have data visualization toolkits for data scientists. In Rthere are many packages to generate heatmaps, such as heatmapheatmap. However, my favorite one is pheatmap.
I am very positive that you will agree with my choice after reading this post. The raw data is from the basketball reference. You can either download the dataset manually or scrape the data by following one of my previous posts. Ready to begin? Language: R. Package name: pheatmap.
Above is the head of the data frame we are working on. Data cleaning: filter out players who played less than 30 minutes per game, remove duplicates of players who got traded during the season and fill NA values with 0. First, pheatmap only takes the numeric matrix object as input. So, we need to transfer the numeric part of the data frame to a matrix by removing the first 5 columns of categorical data.
The scale function in R performs standard scaling to the columns of the input data, which first subtracts the column means from the columns center step and then divides the centered columns by the column standard deviations scale step.
This function is to scale the data to a distribution with mean as 0 and standard deviation as 1. Its equation can be shown as below, where x is the data, u is the column means and s is the column standard deviations.
After scaling the data is ready to be fed into the function. The default behavior of the function includes the hierarchical clustering of both rows and columnsin which we can observe similar players and stats types in close positions.
The code below cancels the column clustering. Actually, the function itself can do both row and column scaling in the heatmap. It mainly serves as a visualization purpose for the comparison across rows or columns. The following code shows the row scaling heatmap. The annotation function is one of the most powerful features of pheatmap. Specifically, you can input an independent data frame with annotations to the rows or columns of the heatmap matrix.
For example, I annotated each player with their position, made it a data frame object and input it to the pheatmap function. One thing to note, the row names of the annotation data frame have to match the row names or column names of the heatmap matrix depending on your annotation target.
You can see from the heatmap that there is another column of colors that indicate the position of the players. Also, we can add the column annotation as well. I named the stats with their categories that include OffenceDefenceand others. Then, I plot the heatmap with column annotation only.
This time I only turn on the column clustering. We can see from the heatmap that the offense-related stats tend to be clustered together. The last feature I would like to introduce is the heatmap cutting feature. Sometimes, it will give a clearer visualization if we cut the heatmap by the clustering.
By cutting a heatmap apart, the stand-alone blocks will represent its own population. The aforementioned group of superstars is present in the third block in the cut heatmap.
We can do a similar thing to the columns as below. In this way, similar stats are shown close to each other. Up until now, I have gone through all the major features of pheatmap.In every statistical analysis, the first thing one should do is try and visualise the data before any modeling.
Pheatmap Draws Pretty Heatmaps
In microarray studies, a common visualisation is a heatmap of gene expression data. In this post I simulate some gene expression data and visualise it using the pheatmap function from the pheatmap package in R. You will also need the mvrnorm function from the MASS library to simulate from a multivariate normal distribution, and the brewer. First I simulate some gene expression data, based on a function that I created, for genes which are correlated conditional on an exposure status the function definition is given at the end of this post :.
To avoid wasting time choosing colors, I recommend using the RColorBrewer package based on the design of geographer Cynthia Brewer.
From the RColorBrewer help page:. You need to provide the RColorBrewer::brewer. We will use the Reds palette which has a maximum number of 9 colors:. If the subjects can be contrasted, it is useful to display this information on the heatmap e. To do so, we first need to create a separate data frame which contains that information.
How can I get the new order of column and row in a heatmap after clusting using the pheatmap
This data frame can contain many columns or just one column. Note that the rownames of this data frame need to correspond to the rownames i. Subjects IDs of the gene expression data created above. In this example we create a data frame which has exposure status and tumor type for each subject:.
We also want to annotate information on the genes, such as pathway membership. To do so, we create another data frame which has the gene annotations.
Hierarchical Clustering in R: The Essentials
Note once again that the rownames of this data frame need to correspond to the columnames i. Gene IDs of the gene expression data created above.
If you decide to cluster, you must then choose the distance metric to use and the clustering method. The pheatmap comes with lots of customizations see the help page for a complete list of options. In this example I only want to cluster the genes i. Note that we must pass the transpose of the matrix for the pheatmap function, which is not the case for other functions such as gplots::heatmap.
It is also possible to create Interactive heatmaps in the sense that you can see the actual values by hovering your mouse over the plot using the d3heatmap pacakge available on github:. This is useful if you are producible markdown reports. The syntax is standard, though does not allow for multiple annotations as in pheatmap. For some reason, this map is not showing up on this website, but it should work when compiling Rmarkdown scripts and viewing the resulting HTML document in your browser or within RStudio.
After some user setup see the plotly help pagethe following code creates an interactive heatmap:. From the RColorBrewer help page: There are 3 types of palettes, sequential, diverging, and qualitative: Sequential palettes are suited to ordered data that progress from low to high.
Lightness steps dominate the look of these schemes, with light colors for low data values to dark colors for high data values. Diverging palettes put equal emphasis on mid-range critical values and extremes at both ends of the data range.This is a post from stackoverflow here they show how to extract dedrogram such in form of respective cluster but this is with heatmap.
Im doing something like this in my code but its giving me all of them togethter not cluster wise as seen in the heatmap. If you want something like gene-to-cluster assignment, you can 'cut' your row dendrogram into a pre-selected number of groups as follows:.
You can also cut the tree at a pre-defined tree height, and extract the gene-to-cluster assignments at that height:.
Hello friend. I am not sure exactly what you need. If you want the row and column names as per the heatmap, then you can do:. That should give your samples as ordered in dat; however, it will assign to each a cluster membership here, 1 or 2.
You can choose the number of clusters by changing the second argument, i. No problem. Apologies for the delay in replying. I was traveling to the other side of the Globe! There is no correct or incorrect answer. You can sometimes justify just a visual inspection of the dendrogram and then decide a point to cut using cutree with k or hpreferably h because then you have a cut-off threshold based on the distance metric that you used usually Euclidean distance or Pearson correlation distance.
Note that I recently published a study on this topic but on metabolomics data: Vitamin D prenatal programming of childhood metabolomics profiles at age 3 y. Also note that the ComplexHeatmap can incorporate PAM or k-means clustering in order to split your heatmap, or you can define the split yourself, like this: C: how to cluster genes in heatmap.
To see how to do this, see also here: Split heatmap by rows. I am looking into the post first i will apply into my data. Yes, with data, the possibilities are endless, but always proceed with caution about results that are seemingly too good to be true usually they are not true.

Question: extract dendrogram cluster from pheatmap. Please log in to add an answer. Right now I have this heatmap:! Hi all, I have seen two widespread practices when dealing with correlation heatmaps and I am not I have been using heatmap. In heatmap. Hi everyone, Sorry for a quite basic question regarding RNAseq analysis.
For the log-transformIf you work in any area of quantitative biology, and especially if you work with transcriptomic data, then you are probably familiar with heatmaps — used for as long as I have been in research, these figures cluster rows and columns of a data matrix, and show both dendrograms alongside a colour-scaled representation of the data matrix itself.
See an example from one of my publications below:. Pretty simple huh? There are two complexities to heatmaps — first, how the clustering itself works i. I can explain the most simple method though, which is hierarchical, agglomerative cluster analysis.
In a nutshell, this works by first calculating the pairwise distance between all data points; it then joins the data points that are the least distant apart; then it joins the next least distant pair of points; etc etc until it has joined all points.
The tree is a graphical representation of this process. At some point the process needs to join groups of points together, and again there are many methods, but one of the most common method is to calculate the average pairwise distance between all pairs of points in the two groups. Put simply, the distance measure is how different two data points are.
It is orthogonal to the similarity measure, which measures how similar two data points are. So how do we calculate distance? WIth the default methods for both the heatmap and heatmap. Imagine we have measured the gene expression of 4 genes over 8 time points:. So we have two highly expressed genes and two lowly expressed genes.
Crucially for this example, the two pairs of genes high and low have very different shapes. Then finally the two groups will be joined. This is born out by a naive cluster analysis on the distance matrix:. The clustering has worked exactly as it was supposed to — by distance, l1 and l2 are the most similar so they are grouped together; then h1 and h2, so they are grouped together.
But the heatmap looks terrible, the colours are all wrong. Well, despite l1 and l2 being clustered together, their colours do not follow the same pattern; same goes for h1 and h2. Think about the data, and then think about the colours in the heatmap above. Data points l2 and l2 have exactly the same coloursas do l1 and h1 — yet they have very different values. Scaling by row means that each row of the data matrix is taken in turn and given to the scale function; the scaled data are then converted into colours.
Here is the heatmap clustered by euclidean distance with scaling turned off:. Well, this looks slightly better, but still not great! Well, think about a heatmap and what green, red and black mean to you. Green usually refers to low; red usually refers to high; and black is somewhere in the middle. Is any of this what you would expect?
The answer, I think, is probably no.Hello, I am recently starting to use pheatmap since it can draw more decent heatmap personal opinion in comparison with heatmap. I know in heatmap. Log In. Welcome to Biostar! Question: Does anybody know how to add a color side bar which will be re-ordered by the clustering in pheatmap.
Please log in to add an answer. In heatmap. I'm using pheatmap to create heatmaps. I've made a heatmap and used the clustering option me In the latest version of Gitools, Gitools v2. Hi All, I'm trying to figure out the best way to associate a color side bar to different factors Hi there, I have a long standing unresolved question about the difference between heatmap.
This is a post from [stackoverflow] here they show how to extract dedrogram such in form of re Hi, I am working in microbiome analysis and am new in using pheatmap package. I have approx s HI All, I'm fairly in new with R, so any help is much appreciated. I'm in the process of making I asked this question at StackOverflow but it seems no one can answer. As far as I can see the t Dear Biostars, Hi. Hello, I know it is possible to generate a heatmap with row annotations using pheatmap, but is i Hi all, I am trying to show differentially expressed genes based on their log fold change on the In R heatmap.
If NA then the rows are not aggregated. Used for mapping values to colors. Useful, if needed to map certain values to certain colors, to certain values. If value is NA then the breaks are calculated automatically. If left as NA, then the values depend on the size of plotting window. Corresponding values are "row""column" and "none". Possible values are "correlation" for Pearson correlation and all the distances supported by distsuch as "euclidean"etc.
If the value is none of the above it is assumed that a distance matrix is provided. Is called with two parameters: original hclust object and the matrix used for clustering. Must return a hclust object. Each row defines the features for a specific row. The rows in the data and in the annotation are matched using corresponding row names. Note that color schemes takes into account if variable is continuous or discrete. It is possible to define the colors for only some of the features. Check examples for details.
If this is a matrix with same dimensions as original matrixthe contents of the matrix are shown instead of original values. Used only if the rows are not clustered. Filetype is decided by the extension in the path. Currently following formats are supported: png, pdf, tiff, bmp, jpeg. Even if the plot does not fit into the plotting window, the file size is calculated so that the plot would fit there, unless specified otherwise.
Parameters passed to grid. The function also allows to aggregate the rows using kmeans clustering. This is advisable if number of rows is so big that R cannot handle their hierarchical clustering anymore, roughly more than Instead of showing all the rows separately one can cluster the rows in advance and show only the cluster centers.

Used for mapping values to colors. Useful, if needed to map certain values to certain colors, to certain values. If value is NA then the breaks are calculated automatically. When breaks do not cover the range of values, then any value larger than max breaks will have the largest color and any value lower than min breaks will get the lowest color.
