HMEC Project

The HMEC dataset was produced by H. Steven Wiley (and collaborators) at the Pacific Northwestern Laboratory, USA. The dataset consists of transcriptomic and proteomic profiles for approximately 500 human genes from the HMEC cell line. Measurements were taken between 0 and 24h after the cells were stimulated with EGF. Below we provide the dataset in matlab form (other formats may be available on request) that was used in Investigating the correspondence between transcriptomic and proteomic profiles using coupled cluster models, Rogers et al., Bioinformatics, 2009. If using the data in your research, please remember to cite the original paper (and the aforementioned Bioinformatics paper if necessary):

On loading hmec.mat, you will be presented with the following variables

Note that the row order is preserved across the various variables. The data have been normalised to have zero mean and unit standard deviation for each gene in each representation. If you require anything else, please feel free to contact us ( as we may already have it!
