Figure 5: Representation of the expression index values for 375 probe-sets annotated to 325 genes and the reduced 37-gene set in the whole blood from 28 cancer patients and 5 normal adults collected in PaxGene and Tempus RNA preservation tubes. Several replicated are represented in each experimental condition. The box within each range of data points represents the upper and lower median of replicate values for each treatment group and line within the box represents the median. The vertical line extending from the box where available represents the upper and lower range of data points for each experimental condition. The 37-gene subset provided a broader dynamic range of expression index values compared with 325-gene set.
