This is a Human 190 chip data set showing differential gene expression between a wide variety of different tumour types. The experiment was carried out using affymetrix arrays. The raw data is available here:

If you would like to see which genes are co-expressed with a gene that is particularly interesting to you ("guilt by association") the dataset has been clustered using Hierarchical clustering and is available for down load here:

To view the results and search for genes you will need to small free TREEVIEW Viewer available here: 

Once you have unzipped and run this program,  use it to load the file: GCM_Total.preprocessed.cdt from the cluster download.
