Question: DiffBind Heatmap Omitting Results?

I'm running into a curious issue with DiffBind's plotHeatmap function when used with a single contrast. It appears to either be omitting some of the results or I'm misusing it. Either way, I'd like to determine the issue.

I've run my analysis and identified ~13000 differentially bound sites:

> k27_results
24 Samples, 55742 sites in matrix:


1 Contrast:
  Group1 Members1 Group2 Members2 DB.DESeq2
1 Normal        6  Tumor       18     13252

Great. Now I check how many are in enriched in either the Normal or Tumor samples.

results =

> sum(results$Fold>0)
[1] 10185
> sum(results$Fold<0)
[1] 3067

Okay, so ~10k enriched in the Normal samples, and ~3k in the Tumor samples. Then I try to make heatmaps to show these.

It doesn't appear that the Tumor enriched sites are being displayed. However, when I remove the contrast parameter from the heatmap call, it looks more appropriate, though I thought that displayed all sites, not just those found to be differentially bound. Am I correct in thinking that or am I wrong here? Clarification would be very much appreciated.

Let me know if any other information is needed.

By default, the maxSites parameter of dba.plotHeatmap() is set to maxSites=1000. This means it will only use the "top" 1,000 intervals (the 1,000 sites with the lowest FDR values when you specify a contrast). You can increase the value of maxSites to plot more sites but it will take longer (the complexity is driven by clustering the sites). 

When you leave out the contrast, it will plot the sites with the highest scores determined by the sortFun parameter, which is by default sortFun=sd, so you are seeing the 1,000 with the highest standard deviations.

It may be useful to assign the value returned "invisibly" to a variable, so you can examine the specific sites you are plotting.

Ah, that clarifies things exceptionally well. Thanks!
