Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma

Description

A data frame with gene expression data from diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) patients.

Usage

data(DLBCL)

Format

This data frame contains the following columns:

DLCL.Sample
DLBCL identifier.
Gene.Expression
Gene expression group.
time
survival time in month.
cens
censoring: 0 censored, 1 dead.
IPI
International prognostic index.
MGEc.1
mean gene expression in cluster 1.
MGEc.2
mean gene expression in cluster 2.
MGEc.3
mean gene expression in cluster 3.
MGEc.4
mean gene expression in cluster 4.
MGEc.5
mean gene expression in cluster 5.
MGEc.6
mean gene expression in cluster 6.
MGEc.7
mean gene expression in cluster 7.
MGEc.8
mean gene expression in cluster 8.
MGEc.9
mean gene expression in cluster 9.
MGEc.10
mean gene expression in cluster 10.

Source

Except of MGE, the data is published at http://llmpp.nih.gov/lymphoma/data.shtml. MGEc.* is the mean of the gene expression in each of ten clusters derived by agglomerative average linkage hierarchical cluster analysis (Hothorn et al., 2002).
