A Curated Microarrays Dataset of MDI-induced Differentiated Adipocytes (3T3-L1) Under Genetic and Pharmacological Perturbations
A curated dataset of Microarrays samples. The samples are MDI-induced pre- adipocytes (3T3-L1) at different time points/stage of differentiation under different types of genetic (knockdown/overexpression) and pharmacological (drug treatment) perturbations. The package documents the data collection and processing. In addition to the documentation, the package contains the scripts that was used to generated the data.
This package is for documenting and distributing a curated dataset of gene expression from MDI-induced 3T3-L1 adipocyte cell model under genetic and pharmacological modification.
The package contains two things:
The data contained in the package can be used in any number of downstream analysis such as differential expression and gene set enrichment.
curatedAdipoArray package can be installed from Bioconductor using
if (!requireNamespace("BiocManager", quietly = TRUE)) install.packages("BiocManager") ::install("curatedAdipoArray")BiocManager
The pre-processing and processing of the data setup environment is available as a
docker image. This image is also suitable for reproducing this document. The

We surveyed the literature for MDI-induced 3T3-L1 microarrays studies with or without course perturbations. 43 published studies were included. 47 datasets from these studies were examined for metadata and annotation completeness. One and two studies were excluded for missing probe intensities and probe annotations respectively. In addition to the data and the metadata, the original publications were also examined to extract the experimental design and other missing experimental details. The remaining datasets were curated, cleaned and packaged in two final datasets for each type of differentiation course perturbation.
The probe intensities, probe annotation and metadata of each study were obtained from the gene expression omnibus (GEO) using
GEOquery. The probe intensities (expression matrices) were collapsed using probe to gene symbol annotation using
collapsRows. The metadata for studies, data series and samples were homogenized across studies using common vocabularies to describe the experimental designs. Information for each sample of the differentiation status and time point were retrieved and recorded. In addition, the treatment type, target, dose and time were added for each sample. The processed datasets were packaged in
Bioconductor``SummarizedExperiment object individually.
For illustration purposes, the dataset objects were merged into two separate
SummarizedExperiment for the genetic or the pharmacological perturbations. In each set, missing and low intensity genes were removed. Then the gene intensities were log transformed and normalized across studies using
limma. Finally, the known batch effects (data series and platform) were removed using

Each of the objects attached to this package is an
SummarizedExperiment. This object contains two main tables. The first is the expression matrix in the form of probe/gene intensities. The second table is the sample metadata.
