# A set of 54359 median gene expressions in log (base 2) scale

### Description

This data set contains a set of 54359 log base 2 gene expression values from a neonatal
whole blood gene expression study described in Smith *et al.* (2007). The data represent
the median of 28 microarrays corresponding to 28 control (healthy) patients of the neonatal study.
This data set is used as a base expressions set for simulating
biomarker data using `simData`

function of the `optBiomarker`

package.

### Usage

### Format

A vector of 54359 gene expressions in log (base 2) scale.
