Thanks to the generous help of this forum, I have generate the following table:

I think that there is too much color. I would like to add a left column like the following:

enter image description here

"variable1" would be in red, span 2 individual rows and be called "Amplification". "variable2" would be in blue, span 5 individual rows and be called "Deletion." Essentially, there would be two coloured cells. I would greatly appreciate the community's feedback. Thank you!

I think you've already figured out the main point, which (I think) was to change the values of blueness and redness in rows 1/2 and 3-7, respectively.

Some further suggestions that may help make the table more visually appealing (and easier to parse):

  • Since most of the numbers in the tables contain decimal points, it's useful to align them on the decimal markers. One way to do this is to use the S column type, which is provided by the siunitx package. (Aside: is it necessary to show 8 or 9 digits after the decimal? Might 3 or 4 digits be every bit as informative?)

  • Some of the numbers in the p-value and adjusted p-value columns are given in decimal form, others in "scientific" form. I'd standardize on the scientific notation form.

  • For better-spaced horizontal lines, consider using the rule-drawing macros of the booktabs package.

Addendum: Here's the same table, but with an extra column (for the words "Amplification" and "Deletion") and without colors. (IMNSHO, coloring the rows doesn't do anything for the table except provide a touch of gaudiness.) You may still want to think about cutting down on the number of digits shown in the table.

  • Thank you you very much! I have uploaded the code that I made yesterday. Your solution is a more accurate and elegant! – Johnathan May 22 '15 at 13:53
  • Hi! I don't understand \begin{longtable} {r l *{2}{S[table-format=-1.9]} *{2}{S[table-format=1.2e-2]} S[table-format=-1.9] } Thank you! – Johnathan May 22 '15 at 14:55
  • @Johnathan - Please see the user guide of the siunitx package for a detailed explanation of the S column type and its many options. Basically, -1.9 sets aside 9 digits after the decimal marker and 1 digit plus enough space for a minus symbol before the decimal marker. – Mico May 22 '15 at 15:08
  • Thanks for your help! I have added a second table (EDIT 2) with proper decimals in scientific notation as you recommended. I am trying to get latex to convert e02 to x10^2 like in your example. In my thesis, I have several tables with scientific notation (I am currently retouching them). I am having a hard time learning how to instruct latex to parse columns and automatically convert into scientific notation. – Johnathan May 22 '15 at 15:59
  • @Johnathan - Would you mind posting the material in "Edit2" as a new question, making the new question specifically about formatting numeric data, some of which may be in decimal format whereas other parts are in scientific format? That way, more people will see it and have a chance to come up with answers. – Mico May 23 '15 at 0:58
