Annotate a tree with a heat map
def plot_heat_tree(heatmap_file, tree_file, output_file=None):
Plot heatmap next to a tree. The order of the heatmap **MUST** be the same,
as order of the leafs on the tree. The tree must be in the Newick format. If
*output_file* is specified, then heat-tree will be rendered as a PNG,
otherwise interactive browser will pop-up with your heat-tree.
heatmap_file: str
Path to the heatmap file. The first row must have '#Names' as first
element of the header.
e.g. #Names, A, B, C, D
row1, 2, 4, 0, 4
row2, 4, 6, 2, -1
tree_file: str
Path to the tree file in Newick format. The leaf node labels should
be the same as as row names in the heatmap file. E.g. row1, row2.
output_file: str, optional
If specified the heat-tree will be rendered in that file as a PNG image,
otherwise interactive browser will pop-up. **N.B.** program will wait
for you to exit the browser before continuing.
