Description of the Data Set
Down syndrome is caused by an extra copy of all or part of chromosome 21; it is the most common non-lethal trisomy in humans. At the time of the study used in this tutorial, conflicting reports had thrown into doubt whether individuals with Down syndrome have dysregulation of gene expression throughout the genome or primarily in genes from chromosome 21. To address this question, Affymetrix GeneChip™ Human U133A arrays were used to assay 25 samples taken from 10 human subjects, with or without Down syndrome, and 4 different tissues. The data revealed a significant upregulation of chromosome 21 genes at the gene expression level in individuals with Down syndrome; this dysregulation was largely specific to chromosome 21 and not a genome-wide phenomenon.
The raw data is available as experiment number GSE1397 in the Gene Expression Omnibus.
