GeneMerge analysis heat map. Each box represents the ratio of GO term frequency in the QTL category to the full genome . In order to better visualize the differences, the frequencies were log transformed to generate the heat map. Red indicates a higher frequency in the QTL regions, green indicates a higher frequency across the genome. White boxes represent GO terms that were not found in the QTL category regions. Some GO terms from specific categories have shown statistical significant over representation when compared to the full genome. The grayed areas of the figure are not statistically significant, while the vibrant colors highlight the statistically significant GO term differences.
