Microarray Time Series Data for T-Cell Activation

Share:

Description

The data result from two experiments investigating the expression response of human T cells to PMA and ionomicin treatment.

The first data set (tcell.34) contains the temporal expression levels of 58 genes for 10 unequally spaced time points. At each time point there are 34 separate measurements. The second data set (tcell.10) stems from a related experiment considering the same genes and identical time points, and contains 10 further measurements per time point. See Rangel et al. (2004) for more details.

Usage

1

Format

tcell.10 and tcell.34 are longitudinal objects, i.e. matrices with 58 colums each and a number of extra attributes (see longitudinal and longitudinal.util).

The vector tcell.gene.descriptions contains the description of the functions of the 58 investigated genes.

This data is described in Rangel et al. (2004).
