CNOlistDREAM: Data used for the DREAM3 challenge

Description Usage Format Source References


This data object contains the DREAM data used in the package vignette, already loaded and formatted as a CNOlist object. This is to be used with the model "DreamModel". This is a data collected on HepG2 cells cultivated with or without stimulation of tgfa, ilk, mek12, pi3k and p38, in combination with inhibition of igf1 and/or il1a. Seven phosphoproteins are measured using Luminex xMAP assays: akt, erk12, ikb, jnk12, p38, hsp27 and mek12.




CNOlistDREAM is a list with the fields "namesCues" (character vector), "namesStimuli" (character vector), "namesInhibitors" (character vector), "namesSignals" (character vector), "timeSignals" (numerical vector), "valueCues" (numerical matrix), "valueInhibitors" (numerical matrix), "valueStimuli"(numerical matrix), "valueSignals"(numerical matrix).
