Heatmap cluster dendrogram plotter.

Project description

heatmapcluster is a python library for generating a clustered heatmap with dendrograms plotted along with the heatmap, such as the following:

Example plot

This is prototype-quality software. The documentation is sparse, and the API will likely change.

Plots are generated with matplotlib ( To use the package, numpy, scipy and matplotlib must be installed.

setuptools is required to install the package using


This is Most of the code is the function make_data, which generates an array of data for the demonstration. The main part of the demo is the last three statements of the script. This script generates the plot shown above:

import numpy as np
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from heatmapcluster import heatmapcluster

def make_data(size, seed=None):
    if seed is not None:

    s = np.random.gamma([7, 6, 5], [6, 8, 6], size=(size[1], 3)).T
    i = np.random.choice(range(len(s)), size=size[0])
    x = s[i]

    t = np.random.gamma([8, 5, 6], [3, 3, 2.1], size=(size[0], 3)).T
    j = np.random.choice(range(len(t)), size=size[1])

    x += 1.1*t[j].T

    x += 2*np.random.randn(*size)

    row_labels = [('R%02d' % k) for k in range(x.shape[0])]
    col_labels = [('C%02d' % k) for k in range(x.shape[1])]

    return x, row_labels, col_labels

x, row_labels, col_labels = make_data(size=(64, 48), seed=123)

h = heatmapcluster(x, row_labels, col_labels,
                   num_row_clusters=3, num_col_clusters=0,
