As yeast cultures enter stationary phase in rich, glucose-based medium, differentiation of two major subpopulations of cells, termed quiescent and nonquiescent, is observed. Differences in mRNA abundance between exponentially growing and stationary-phase cultures and quiescent and nonquiescent cells are known, but little was known about protein abundance in(More)
To determine whether gene expression profiling could improve risk classification and outcome prediction in older acute myeloid leukemia (AML) patients, expression profiles were obtained in pretreatment leukemic samples from 170 patients whose median age was 65 years. Unsupervised clustering methods were used to classify patients into 6 cluster groups(More)
Outcome for children with childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) who relapse is poor. To gain insight into the mechanisms of relapse, we analyzed gene-expression profiles in 35 matched diagnosis/relapse pairs as well as 60 uniformly treated children at relapse using the Affymetrix platform. Matched-pair analyses revealed significant differences in the(More)
The ongoing analyses of published genome-scale data sets is evidence that different approaches are required to completely mine this data. We report the use of novel tools for both visualization and data set comparison to analyze yeast gene-expression (cell cycle and exit from stationary phase/G(0)) and protein-interaction studies. This analysis led to new(More)
In theory, it should be possible to infer realistic genetic networks from time series microarray data. In practice, however, network discovery has proved problematic. The three major challenges are 1) inferring the network; 2) estimating the stability of the inferred network; and 3) making the network visually accessible to the user. Here we describe a(More)
Here we describe an automated, pressure-driven, sampling device for harvesting 10 to 30 ml samples, in replicate, with intervals as short as 10 s. Correlation between biological replicate time courses measured by microarrays was extremely high. The sampler enables sampling at intervals within the range of many important biological processes.
Benchmark tests have been designed and conducted for the purpose of evaluating the use of automated tape libraries in on-line digital check image retrieval applications. This type of application is representative of digital library applications requiring service to multiple concurrent users with service request response time identified as a very important(More)
