MicroArray Colored Scatter View



The ColoredScatterView is a scatter view colored by the genes intensity and it is mainly used to visualize the analyzed single cell data. It is available for -Omic /Microarray Data objects.

This View creates one plot per gene (row of an expression matrix), plotting the expression of this gene on the Y-axis for each cell/sample along the X-axis.

This View can be added by right-clicking an Omic data object and selecting Select View | ScatterColorView. Next step will ask for the coordinates to be used in the chart view.

In addition to automatic trellising by Gene (row):

  • data can be subset by column metadata (for example to only view one cell type per plot)
  • plots can be subset by particular samples/cells (columns)

  • Change Chart Properties: Change details of the graph, X- and Y-axes, e.g. plot line thickness, rotate labels, etc.
  • Flip X/Y Axis: Rotate the plot.
  • Change Symbol Properties: If plotting data points (e.g. Scatter, BoxPlot), change how each point is drawn.
  • Specify Coordinates: Update coordinates used for plotting.

  • Change To Speed-First Mode: Choose the design column for labels.

  • Open in Editor: Open the underlying data for the current View in your Text Editor
  • Open in Editor: Open the underlying data for the current View in Excel

The underlying expression matrix can be filtered by Variable or Observation metadata to control which genes or cells/samples are being displayed in the ColoredScatterView.
