Table 2 The null hypothesis and the interpretation of tested probesets.

From: Factorial microarray analysis of zebra mussel (Dreissena polymorpha: Dreissenidae, Bivalvia) adhesion

Null hypothesis Interpretation when null hypothesis is rejected
H 0 : A = 0 The expression profile of certain genes is modified in response to the surrounding temperature.
H 0 : B = 0 The expression profile of the gene is modified by the change of water movement.
H 0 : C = 0 The expression profile of the gene is modified by dissolved oxygen level.
H 0 : D = 0 The expression profile of the gene is modified by byssogenic activity.
