expdata This data set has been generated by SynTRen. The source network corresponds to a subnetwork of E.coli (file name "EColi_full_HongWu_Ma_NAR2004.sif" from Ma HW, et. al. Nuc. Ac. Res. 2004).
Example data; rows correspond to variables (e.g. genes) and columns to samples.
The example is also given to provide a sample data set so that one can take it as reference while formatting the new data set as entry to c3net. Data sets must be complete and no empty or non-numerical character allowed.
expdata returns an example data set where rows are variables (e.g. genes) and columns are samples. It consists of 400 genes, 898 edges, and 800 steady-state samples.
