FlexDotPlot: a universal and modular dot plot visualization tool for complex multifaceted data

BioRxiv : the Preprint Server for Biology
S. LeonardA. Lardenois


Motivation: Dot plots are heatmap-like charts that provide a compact way to simultaneously display two quantitative information by means of dots of different sizes and colours. Despite the popularity of this visualization method, particularly in single-cell RNA-seq studies, existing tools used to make dot plots are limited in terms of functionality and usability. Results: We developed FlexDotPlot, an R package for generating dot plots from any type of multifaceted data, including single-cell RNA-seq data. FlexDotPlot provides a universal and easy-to-use solution with a high versatility. An interactive R Shiny application is also available in the FlexDotPlot package allowing non-R users to easily generate dot plots with several tunable parameters. Availability and implementation: Source code and detailed manual are available at https://github.com/Simon-Leonard/FlexDotPlot. The Shiny app is available as a stand-alone application within the package.
