Table 1 Missing values. Examples of missing value occurrences in different datasets from the yeast S. cerevisiae and human microarrays experiments. The year of publication, the studied organism, the number of genes on the DNA chip, the number of experimental conditions, the percentage of MVs and the percentage of genes with missing values are indicated.
