Gene expression Integration of heterogeneous expression data sets extends the role of the retinol pathway in diabetes and insulin resistance

Motivation: Type 2 diabetes is a chronic metabolic disease that involves both environmental and genetic factors. To understand the genetics of type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance, the DIabetes Genome Anatomy Project (DGAP) was launched to profile gene expression in a variety of related animal models and human subjects. We asked whether these… CONTINUE READING
