Dear all, I have a matrix with some suspicious entries. I would like to show all entries (all numbers) and color by red my suspicious data. I have no idea how to do it:( Thanks!

Thanks, Evan. I guess I would like to color certain data points by red, but having all the values.

What are the features that make your data suspicious? For example, if the suspicious data is all very large (say 2 standard deviations larger than the average datum), then you could try something like
% a proxy for your matrix
dataMatrix = randn(100,100);
% logical variable
isSuspect = dataMatrix > mean(dataMatrix(:))+2*std(dataMatrix(:));
% create an image where each pixel represents an entry in dataMatrix.
% the pixel will be red if isSuspect(i,j) is true
% or (less exciting)
