Gene expression data for primate brains


This data set consists of gene expression of primate brains (Affymetrix U95A GeneChip). The frozen brains of three humans (H1, H2, H3) and three chimpanzees (C1, C2, C3) were used to take the postmortem tissue samples, and two independent tissue samples for each individual were taken.




A matrix containing 12,600 probe sets and 12 chips (H1,H1,H2,H2,H3,H3,C1,C1,C2,C2,C3,C3); the first column is probe set ID
