Registration Open for Bioc2024 July 24-26


This is the development version of splots; for the stable release version, see splots.

Visualization of high-throughput assays in microtitre plate or slide format

Bioconductor version: Development (3.20)

This package is here to support legacy usages of it, but it should not be used for new code development. It provides a single function, plotScreen, for visualising data in microtitre plate or slide format. As a better alternative for such functionality, please consider the platetools package on CRAN ( and, or ggplot2 (geom_raster, facet_wrap) as exemplified in the vignette of this package.
