Mar 18, 2004 Prototype study 1: 2-way comparison Molecular differences in adipocytes of type-2 Diabetes vs Normal humans. 27 type-2 diabetes patients. 11 normal patients. arrays. Pre-study reality check: Stratification – clinical phenotype. Partial math formulation: Let D = chip data of j-th Diabetic. N j = j-th j Normal. D , N j are vectors/matrices whose dimensions depend j upon # genes/parameters/variables measured per sample. Next steps . ..

Mar 18, 2004 What is DR? A mathematical re formulation of a scientific, real-world problem. Mapping observations and measurements to a set of symbols (typically, real numbers) that can be acted upon by an algebra. The form of representing the data values in the integrated dataset, including any numerical type conversion or re- classification that was performed. Usually this will involve only type conversions, although occasionally actual numerical changes may have been necessary. The units and precision are also indicated. [ www.ngdc.noaa.gov ] Something to do with database annotation and standards. Multimedia: Charts, graphs, plots.
