The dual channel microarray experiments were carried out using a common reference hybridization design. In this study the reference RNA sample was prepared by pooling of total RNAs from different porcine tissues. The test samples were RNA samples isolated from total porcine blood. According to the total white blood cells count, 18 animals were selected from the edges of the distribution, named high-count group (HC, 9 animals) and low-count group (LC, 9 animals).
