HeavyMice: Heavy Mice Dataset.

Description Usage Format References


This data set gives a subset of the microarray expression data from the liver tissue of heavy female mice. There were 3421 genes and 135 mice in the full data set; this data set was obtained by removing genes and mice with missing values. Then the 50 heaviest mice (weights greater than 40.5 g) were selected. Finally, univariate regressions of mouse weights on each individual gene were performed and 314 genes with z-scores greater than 5 were selected.
