I want to visualize gene density along several chromosomes as a heatmap like the supplementary figure 13 in this link

Hope someone could recommend some python or R packages for doing that. Great thanks!

If Perl is also OK for you: DensityMap.

You should try karyoploteR. It comes with a tutorial specifically for plotting the density of genes along the genome.

This is just one visualization. The karyoploteR package has a lot of different settings to change the exact appearance.
