  1. Combination of microarray data from a total of 6 different experiments and 16 different time points ({in parentheses}, see also Table 1 and text for details) to analyse 4 different responses to mastitis infection: (I) overall response, (II) early stage response, (III) late stage response, and (IV) cattle-specific response.
