Overview of hierarchical clustering of all samples. Hierarchically clustered gene expression profiles of 28 mixed and purified leukocyte samples. Results for ~741 genes with high variation in transcript levels among these samples. Genes and blood samples are organized by hierarchical clustering based on overall similarity in expression patterns. Expression levels are represented by a color key in which bright red represents the highest levels and bright green represents the lowest levels, and less saturated shades represent intermediate levels of expression. Values were centered across all samples to a mean of zero. Clusters of genes are labeled according to which samples have the highest relative gene expression.
