While trying to analyse the expression profile for individual donors, I realized that the data is missing for specific structures in the brain and this is different in different donors. For example, I found that the expression data for certain hypothalamic structures are missing in donor9861 when compared to other donors. It holds true for other structures in the brain and donors as well.
On checking the gene correlates, the expression columns for those structures are simply empty.
Is there a specific reason for these differences? Or these structures were not profiled for those donors?
I appreciate your help!
