SUMMARY: We present bubbleHeatmap, an R plotting package which combines elements of a bubble plot and heatmap to conveniently display two numerical variables for each data point across a categorical two dimensional grid. This has particular advantages for visualizing the 251 metabolomic measures produced by the automated, high-throughput, 1H-NMR-based platform provided by Nightingale Health, which includes 12 measures repeated across each of 14 lipoprotein subclasses. As these metabolomic profiles are currently available for large biobanks, we provide a figure template to aid the use of bubbleHeatmap in displaying results from analyses using these data.
