[…] temporal expression, Z scores of the RPKM values were used. Heatmaps were produced with the programs gplots and heatmap.2 using R []. Differential gene expression clustering was done with the program Expander version 7.1 [], using as input, RPKM data and the click algorithm. More details of the input are available in the results section, which also contains hyperlinks to several databases, as expl […]


Salivary Glycopatterns as Potential Biomarkers for Screening of Early Stage Breast Cancer
