nkis: Gene expression, annotations and clinical data from van de...

Description Usage Format Details Source References Examples


This dataset contains (part of) the gene expression, annotations and clinical data as published in van de Vijver et al. 2002.




nkis is a dataset containing three matrices:


Matrix containing gene expressions as measured by Agilent technology (dual-channel, oligonucleotides


Matrix containing annotations of Agilent microarray platform


Clinical information of the breast cancer patients whose tumors were hybridized


This dataset represent only partially the one published by van de Vijver et al. in 2008. Indeed, only part of the patients (150) and gene expressions (922) are contained in data.nkis.
