Database Description

BloodSpot is a database that provides gene expression profiles of genes and gene signatures in healthy and malignant hematopoiesis and includes data from both humans and mice. In addition to the default plot, that displays an integrated expression plot, two additional levels of visualization are available; an interactive tree showing the hierarchical relationship between the samples, and a Kaplan-Meier survival plot. The database is sub-divided into several datasets that are accessible for browsing.
