MOTIVATION Currently the confocal scanning microscopy of fluorescently tagged molecules is extensively employed to acquire quantitative data on gene expression at cellular resolution. Following this approach, we generated a large dataset on the expression of segmentation genes in the Drosophila blastoderm, that is widely used in systems biology studies. As data accuracy is of critical importance for the success of studies in this field, we took a shot to evaluate possible errors introduced in… CONTINUE READING
