The complete data set is a text file with tab-delimited columns. The column heading symbols refer to the following:

G Green Channel (Timepoint 1)

R Red Channel (Timepoints 1-7)

Bkg Background Counts

1-7 Timepoints 1-7 (Refer to the growth curve)

F Refers to User Flag. Any number other than zero indicates a problem with that array spot. This can occur when dust, or particles interfere or overlay an array element.

Remember that each array consists of Timepoint 1 (low OD, high glucose) labeled in green, and Timepoint1,2,3,4,5,6, or 7 labeled in Red.
