Expr_profile Search

Expression Profile is a type of gene clustering analysis based on many sets of independent and sometimes unrelated microarray data (Kim et al. Science, 293: 2087-2092. 2001). It is expressed in a topographical form.

To find the location of a gene in the profile, type, for example, Gene name: lin-41. (predicted gene name such as ZK512.7 is also okay).

If the gene is found, a profile image is shown, with the gene's location marked by a blue circle. In the case of lin-41, the circle is in 'Mountain 5', a concentration of genes (red dots). The proxy for lin-41 in the microarray analysis is a PCR Product: sjj_C12C8.3. You can click on the link and get detailed information.

Clicking on "Mountain": 5 brings you to an external link at Science magazine web site where more information about this and other mountains can be found.
