Normally when I post to this list I try to provide some background as I have no idea where
everyone else is interest-wise. I vaguely remember running into something related while
researching some other topic and went back to do a quick literature search. I'm not sure
of your immediate problem or state of knowledge but, from what I can find, this is generally an open
area. For example, you could try reading stuff like this,


Clin Lab Med. 2008 Mar;28(1):127-43. Links
Data mining for biomarker development: a review of tissue specificity analysis.Klee EW.
Division of Experimental Pathology, Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology, Mayo Clinic, 200 1st Street SW, Stabile 2-50, Rochester, MN 55905, USA

I was surprised to find many genes labelled, "tissue specific"


and maybe you could look into some of the related publications. 

Do you have a specific thesis, problem, or objective?
