colorectalcancer: Results from a microarray experiment comparing colorectal...

Description Usage Source


The colorectal dataset consists: i) an named vector DE_Colorectal , which represents the $log2$ fold changes of the genes chosen as differentially expressed between colorectal cancer and normal samples based on data from Hong et al, 2007, using a $FDR=0.1$ and the universe of all Entrez gene IDs available on the array, ALL_Colorectal. These two vectors were obtained starting from the top dataframe which is the output from the topTable function of the limma package using the RMA processed gene expression data downloaded from GEE (GSE4107). The microarray platform used was Affymetrix HGU-133PLUS2.0.
