What is HEAPSNAPSHOT file?
Heap Snapshot Data Format is one of the different file formats for storing gene expression data. It consists of three files: a header, raw data, and index or summary file. The header contains information describing the start and end position of each gene in the raw data part, as well as other metadata like sample names and annotations. The index or summary file is only used when working with an clustered array experiment. It creates a hierarchical tree-like structure out of the raw data section that is useful when exploring results.
