The cell type expression pattern of the gene corresponding to each cDNA sequence was inferred. The human orthologs of each cDNA sequence were used to infer cell type gene expression patterns using expression data (egenetic data) obtained from biomart. The results include expression across 44 cell types. The number of genes with inferred expression in each cell type is indicated (Number of Genes), as well the percentage of genes with inferred expression in each cell type (% of Genes).
