ggplot2 and heatmap plus are two easy to handle R packages! Check them out:
Most likely you want to make a heatmap with the following options:
- Plot a dendrogram of clustering on both colums and rows of the heatmap
- Plot multiple sample information colors on rows or columns
- A legend that tells you how the intensity of the colors corresponds with the values that went into the heatmap
If you want all three of them, then you can either use ggplot2 but you will have difficulties with aligning the dendrogram plots with the heatmap. You will have to do something nasty like playing the viewport settings. Or you can go with the How Do I Draw A Heatmap In R With Both A Color Key And Multiple Color Side Bars?
HI! I appreciate that this has been a long time since your question, but you or anyone else reading this may be interested in this. I just developed a Julia-based GUI tool to plot heatmaps based on Python's Seaborn package, just for the reason you wanted. Though it doesn't make use of R. Just 10-15 min to get it running. Very minimal/no coding is required for this. Just need to click to input .xlsx/.csv/.txt files and a heatmap would be produced. At the minute, only heatmaps are supported. In the near future, additional plotting types and functionalities will be supported. This is the link with the full information and instruction:
