Creating a sub-experiment from a selection

If you have identified a list of genes that you believe are differentially expressed, you can create a subset of the experiment. (Note that the filtering and sorting may come in handy in this situation, see Working with tables).

To create a sub-experiment, first select the relevant features (rows). If you have applied a filter and wish to select all the visible features, press Ctrl + A (Image command_key_web + A on Mac). Next, press the Create Experiment from Selection (Image expression_experiment_subset) button at the bottom of the table (see figure 27.29).

Figure 27.29: Create a subset of the experiment by clicking the button at the bottom of the experiment table.

This will create a new experiment that has the same information as the existing one but with less features.
