Color Manager

 

Overview

The Color Manager is used to set the colors used for coloring the color matrix, matrix tree, two way matrix tree, or 3D score plot items by gene list and/or variable.

The Color Manager is also used to create the color priority hierarchy for gene list coloring. If a gene is in more than one list, the color used for that gene is the color associated with that genes highest priority list. For example, if gene 'A' is in lists 1, 2, and 3, and the lists are prioritized with 1 as the highest and 3 as the lowest, the color used for gene 'A' is the color for list 1.

The color scheme is saved between GeneLinkerô sessions.
