All glyco-gene expression data obtained by the CFG's Gene Microarray Core (Core E) is now available in the Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) database, a publicly-accessible data repository administered by the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). These data represent results from screening nearly 3000 murine and human cell and tissue samples on the CFG glyco-gene microarray chip during the period of Core E’s operation from 2001-2011. The resulting data sets also remain available in the CFG database.
Finding CFG data in GEO
To find data from an individual experiment, follow the links under the 'Data Analysis' column on the CFG Microarray Data page. To find all data sets generated using specific versions of the CFG glyco-gene chip, go to the GEO website and search for the accession numbers for the four different versions of the chip, called 'platforms' (see figure). Note that for versions 3 and 4 of the chip only, data sets for mouse and human probes were assigned different accession numbers.
