McConnell P, Johnson K, Lin S. Applications of Tree-Maps to hierarchical biological data. Bioinformatics. 2002 Sep;18(9):1278-9. PubMed PMID: 12217926.

A brief overview of Tree-Maps provides the basis for understanding two new implementations of Tree-Map methods. TreeMapClusterView provides a new way to view microarray gene expression data, and GenePlacer provides a view of gene ontology annotation data. We also discuss the benefits of Tree-Maps to visualize complex hierarchies in functional genomics.
