A novel data set, GeneNote (Gene Normal Tissue Expression), was produced to portray complete gene expression profiles in healthy human tissues using the Affymetrix GeneChip HG-U95 set, which includes 62 839 probe-sets. The hybridization intensities of two replicates were processed and analyzed to yield the complete transcriptome for twelve human tissues. Abundant novel information on tissue specificity provides a baseline for past and future expression studies related to diseases. The data is posted in GeneNote (, a widely used compendium of human genes (
