Visualizing gene expression in heat maps using ggplot

Before we start I should note there are many excellent R packages for making heat maps, including heatmap3. So why use ggplot to make heat maps? One of the advantages is the flexibility and ability to tap into the ggplot grammar and extensions. It also allows more intuitive customization to make the graph look more like other ggplot figures.
