What’s the answer? (transcriptome + microarray data sets)

BioStar is a site for asking, answering and discussing bioinformatics questions. We are members of the community and find it very useful. Often questions and answers arise at BioStar that are germane to our readers (end users of genomics resources). Every Thursday we will be highlighting one of those questions and answers here in this thread. You can ask questions in this thread, or you can always join in at BioStar.

This week’s highlighted question:


I’m wondering if anyone is aware of datasets for which there is publicly available microarray and RNA-seq data on the same samples?

So far I’ve come up with the HapMap CEU and YRI samples:

And this paper about estimating accuracy of both platforms using proteomics:


If anyone is aware of any more off the top of their head I’d be very grateful!



I thought this was a good question because it’s worth a look at the different technologies to see what we are or are not seeing. And the one with the proteomics samples was a neat consideration as well. But if you know of other papers where you’ve seen this, bring it over to the replies. It something we ought to look at.
