NCI60R Documentation

NCI60 data set


cDNA microarrays were used to examine the variation in gene expression among the 60 cell lines. The cell lines are derived from tumors with different sites of origin. This data set contain 61 observations and 30 feature variables from 8 different tissue types.

  • Type has 8 different tissue types, 9 cases of breast, 5 cases of central nervous system (CNS), 7 cases pf colon, 8 cases of leukemia, 8 cases of melanoma, 9 cases of non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC), 6 cases of ovarian and 9 cases of renal.

  • Gene1 to Gen 30 gene expression information
