The Heat Map Results tab contains the following elements:

The heat map and clustering results are useful to find and interpret patterns of relatedness across samples in the analysis. The output relationship matrix is a square symmetric matrix representing genetic relatedness of all possible pairs of samples computed using either the

IBD,

IBS, or AS metric. The heat map is a visual representation of computed genetic relationships where color represents the value of the computed relatedness metric for pairs of samples. The clustering

dendrogram on the right side and bottom of the heat map show the clustering history of the samples. Samples that are grouped closely together indicate samples with similar patterns of relatedness.

The Results on this tab are linked to the Principal Components Analysis tabs (PCA 2D Row Scores,

PCA 3D Row Scores) if they are shown. These tabs are interactive; you can select rows/samples using the dendrogram on this tab and see where those samples are in the PCA analysis and vice versa.
