'x' is a symbol which stands for an arbitrary quantity, in this case an
arbitrary numeric matrix. You are asking, "how can I obtain an arbitrary
quantity from a limma object", not a meaningful question.
My guess is that you will want the 'coef' component of your limma
'MArrayLM' object, but really you need to decide exactly what it is that
you want to make a heatmap of, then we can tell you how to obtain it.
