Dear All,

Kindly suggest me which value are expression value in the following table that can be utilized for plotting Heatmap.

You normally use the normalised matrix and select probes/genes of interest from a statistical test, unless the variance in your data is very strongly related to your variables of interest - in this case you would use the most variables probes/genes and cluster these. I find aheatmap from the NMF package particularly good for this.

None of the above. There's not much point making a heatmap from a single set of values - see the discussion at A: Heatmaps with replicates or triplicate data sets with counts to EdgeR, DESeq, or. If you want to make a heatmap, I would suggest using the original matrix of expression values. If you're using a one-way layout without an intercept, you could also use the fit$coefficients to visualise the average expression of each group (assuming you have more than two groups, otherwise the heatmap would be fairly boring).
