Table 2 Overlap between our gene lists and the lists from other studies &/or sources

From: Analyses and interpretation of whole-genome gene expression from formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue: an illustration with breast cancer tissues

  1. *All the genes in the external list were used in a model to predict the tissue type (tumor or normal) in our data set to calculate the % correct rate. For all models, nearest centroid with equal prior probability was used as classification method. ** Gene lists are combined from Su et al [20], Yu et al [21] and Ramaswami et al.[19]
