Description

Gene expression data (2000 genes for 62 samples) from the microarray experiments of Colon tissue samples of Alon et al. (1999).

Usage

1

Details

This data set contains 62 samples with 2000 genes: 40 tumor tissues, coded 2 and 22 normal tissues, coded 1.

Value

A list with the following elements:

X

a (62 x 2000) matrix giving the expression levels of 2000 genes for the 62 Colon tissue samples. Each row corresponds to a patient, each column to a gene.

Y

a numeric vector of length 62 giving the type of tissue sample (tumor or normal).

gene.names

a vector containing the names of the 2000 genes for the gene expression matrix X.
