Microarray gene expression time course data for mammary gland development in mice

Description

The data contains 30 genes identified using cluster analysis from 12488 probe sets representing approximately 8600 genes. The data are measured over 54 arrays of 3 replicates each on 18 time points of the developmental stages of mammary gland in mice. See Stein et al. (2004) for more details.
