Machine learning based diagnosis for disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC): Development, external validation, and comparison to scoring systems

PLoS One
PMCID: 5931474
PMID: 29718941
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0195861

[…] []. JMHW and JAAM scores could not be evaluated in set 2 as FDP was lacked in the DIC profile of set 2.Statistics software R version 3.4.3 was used for data analysis. Datasets were visualized using ‘ComplexHeatmap’ package []. Performance evaluation was achieved via receiver operating characteristic (ROC) curve analysis, and calculation of AUC using the ‘pROC’ package []. The cut-off value (0.501 […]


Racial differences in endometrial cancer molecular portraits in The Cancer Genome Atlas

PMCID: 5908308
PMID: 29682207
DOI: 10.18632/oncotarget.24907

[…] ng customised functions to generate MA and volcano plots, and also inspection of Cook's distance and plots of mean of normalised counts versus p-value. Clustering with heatmap was performed using the ComplexHeatmap package [] and included all variance stabilised counts for differentially expressed transcripts at 5% FDR and log2FC>2. Prior to heatmap generation, partitioning around medoids (PAM) wa […]


Alpha oxoglutarate inhibits the proliferation of immortalized normal bladder epithelial cells via an epigenetic switch involving ARID1A

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5852004
PMID: 29540744
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-22771-2
call_split See protocol

[…] IlluminaMethylationManifest, a class built within the minfi package. Volcano plots were constructed using the Biconductor package, TCGAbiolinks. Heatmaps were created using the Bioconductor package, ComplexHeatmap. Differentially methylated genes (DMGs) were identified using a simple T-test comparing treated and un-treated groups. Additionally, we compared the mean β-values of two groups and only […]


De Novo Assembly and Phasing of Dikaryotic Genomes from Two Isolates of Puccinia coronata f. sp. avenae, the Causal Agent of Oat Crown Rust

PMCID: 5821079
PMID: 29463655
DOI: 10.1128/mBio.01650-17

[…] ere is a full list at Functional annotations for each isolate were compared (compare function) and summary heatmaps prepared from the parsed results using ComplexHeatmap (1.12.0) in R. Gene ontology (GO) terms were compared between isolates using goatools and Fisher’s exact test with false-discovery rate and multiple-test correction ( […]


Methylation profiling identifies two subclasses of squamous cell carcinoma related to distinct cells of origin

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5805678
PMID: 29422656
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03025-1

[…] -house control data set (>2%, among 280 controls). Based on ANNOVAR annotations, only the variants in coding regions were selected for the analysis. The oncoprint plot was finally generated using the ComplexHeatmap R package. […]
