Table 4 The multi-class, cancer-biology related transcriptional profiling data sets analyzed in this work. For each of the five published studies, the fluorescent intensities, microarray images, and associated information were downloaded from the URLs indicated. The statistics refer to data sets produced after application of all pre-normalization data processing, location/scale normalization, and post-normalization data processing steps. The abbreviations are as follows, Microarrays: number of cDNA microarrays; Probes: number of probes; K: total number of categories to which a sample could be assigned; Samples and Class: number of samples in the specified pre-defined category; Configuration: configuration of a microarray using the convention described in Figure 1.
