These files contain mechanical data from a study evaluating the mechanical role of small leucine rich proteoglycans in the murine cervix during pregnancy.

The experimental_data folder contains a .csv file corresponding to each tested sample. Each file includes the experimental data of each tensile test.

The names of the file indicate the sample information and follow the format: gestation_genotype_sample#.
Gestation: NP = nonpregnant, d18 = gestation day 18.
Genotype: WT = wildtype, DcnKO = Dcn^{-/-}Bgn^{+/+}, BgnKO = Dcn^{+/+}Bgn^{-/-}
DB = Dcn^{-/-}Bgn^{+/-}, BD = Dcn^{+/-}Bgn^{-/-}, and DKO = Dcn^{-/-}Bgn^{-/-}
sample#: 1-5 (except for DKO)
For example, NP_WT_1_raw_data corresponds to nonpregnant wildtype sample #1.

In these files, the columns correspond to: Time [s], Force [N], cervical opening [mm], standard deviation of cervical opening [mm], width [mm], standard deviation of width [mm], length [mm], standard deviation of length [mm], height [mm], and standard deviation of height [mm]. The time and force data are from the universal testing machine and the geometries are determined by segmented camera images.
