estrogen {factDesign}R Documentation

Microarray Data from an Experiment on Breast Cancer Cells

Description

Gene expression levels for 500 genes from a 2x2 factorial experiment on MCF7 breast cancer cells using Affymetrix HGU95av2 arrays.

Usage

data(estrogen)

Format

An exprSet with 500 genes, 8 samples, and 2 variables.

Details

The factors in this experiment were estrogen (ES: P or A) and length of exposure (TIME: 10 or 48 hours). Gene expression values were estimated using rma after quantile normalization (see the 'affy' package). Expression estimates are reported log base 2, as suggested by the rma method.
