sultan: RNA-seq data from humans in Sultan et al. (2008)

Description Usage Format Value Source References


This dataset represents RNA-seq data from humans in two conditions (Ramos B cell line and HEK293T), with two biological replicates per condition. The ExpressionSet was downloaded from the ReCount online resource.




An ExpressionSet named sultan.eset containing the phenotype data and expression data for the Sultan et al. (2008) experiment. Phenotype data may be accessed using the pData function, and expression data may be accessed using the exprs function.


Object of class ‘ExpressionSet’. Matrix of counts can be accessed after loading the ‘Biobase’ package and calling exprs(sultan)).
