Question: visualizing limma results

Hi to everybody I have used limma to find out genes with different expression with high level of confidence in a Multiclass comaparison. Now I need to visualize by a heatmap our results. Only for visualization pourposes using functions heatmap and heatmap.2 I 've tried to separete different classes with the most significant genes. But I didn't succeded! Is it strange? No? Or may be am I misinterpreting something? I expected a good separation yet with genes that have a significant adjusted p.value (less then e-5)...but nothing happened...So I tried to filter also by log odds (B>3) and Coefficient (Coeff<-2 and Coeff>2)...but I didn't manage to separate different classes comparing for example sM vs UM. Have you any suggestions for visualizing limma results with heatmap?Is it incorrect to expect a separation of classes by heatmap with limma selected genes? Thanks in advance Daniela Here you can find part of my R code: >RG<-read.maimages(Targets$,source="genepix", .01)) >RG$printer<-getLayout(RG$genes) >MA<-normalizeWithinArrays(RG,bc.method="minimum") >MAlast<-normalizeBetweenArrays(MA,method="quantile") group<-factor(c("nsM",rep("UM",7),"nsM","sM","nsM","sM","nsM","NC",rep ("sM",2),"UM","sM","UM","nsM","UM","nsM", rep("sM",2),"UM","nsM",rep("UM",3),"sM",rep("nsM",2),"sM",rep("nsM",2) ,"sM","nsM",rep("sM",3),"nsM","sM","nsM", "UM","sM","UM",rep("sM",5),rep("UM",2),"nsM","UM",rep("nsM",3)),levels =c("nsM","UM","sM","NC")) >design<-model.matrix(~0+group) >colnames(design)<-c("nsM","UM","sM","NC") >cont.matrix<-makeContrasts(UM.M=UM-(nsM+sM),UM.nsM=UM-nsM,UM.sM=UM- sM,nsM.sM=nsM-sM,levels=design) >dupcor <- duplicateCorrelation(MAlast,design=design) >fit2COR<,cont.matrix) >fit2COR<-eBayes(fit2COR) >results<-decideTests(fit2,method="nestedF",adjust.method="BY",p.value =0.001) #####tab is a summary genereted in the workspace matrix with a function like , containing all of information of fit2COR >a<-which(tab$Genes.ID!="empty" & tab$Res.UM.sM!=0 & tab$B.UM.sM>2 & tab$p.value.UM.sM<0.000001 >q<-which(MAlast$targets$Cy5=="sM" ) >qq<-which(MAlast$targets$Cy5=="UM") >index<-c(qq,q) >heatMATRIX<-as.matrix(MAlast$M[a,index]) >colnames(heatMATRIX)<-paste(MAlast$targets$Cy5[index],MAlast$targets$[index]) >heatmap.2(heatMATRIX,col=redgreen(75), scale="row", key=TRUE, symkey=FALSE,"none", trace="none", cexRow=0.5)
