The HeatMapViewer is a BioJS component that lays-out and Summary: renders two-dimensional (2D) plots or heat maps that are ideally suited to visualize matrix formatted data in biology such as for the display of microarray experiments or the outcome of mutational studies and the study of SNP-like sequence variants. It can be easily integrated into documents and provides a powerful, interactive way to visualize heat maps in web applications. The software uses a scalable graphics technology that

The component can be applied to present various biological data types. Here, we present two such cases -showing gene expression data and visualizing mutability landscape analysis.
