Annotation information for published TB signatures.Source:
A data.frame of annotation information for published tuberculosis signatures.
Currently, this table includes two variables,
?TBsignatures for reference information.
disease variable indicates whether the signature was developed
to distinguish TB from LTBI ("Disease"), TB from some combination of other
diseases and possibly LTBI ("OD"), TB from Human Immunodeficiency Virus ("HIV"),
TB from pneumonia ("PNA"), or identify risk of progression to TB ("RISK"),
risk of TB treatment failure ("FAIL"), or classify treatment responses
(i.e., failures from cures, "RES").
tissue type variable denotes whether the signature was developed
using samples of either whole blood/paxgene or peripheral blood mononuclear
cells (PBMCs). Due to the manipulation of cells inherently required to obtain
PBMCs, many scientists prefer to use only whole blood samples for analysis.
