Transcriptomic dose-response to ionizing radiation in zebrafish with batch effect


A sample of an RNAseq data set of the dose-response to the chronic exposure to ionizing radiation of zebrafish embryo from fertilization and up to 48 hours post-fertilization with the corresponding batch effect of the experiment.




zebraf contains a list of three objects, zebraf$counts an integer matrix of counts of reads (1000 rows for a sample pf 1000 transcripts and 16 columns for the 16 sampels), zebraf$dose, a numeric vector coding for the dose of each sample and zebraf$batch a factor coding for the batch of each sample.
