Table 1 Literature based functional significance (LBFS) of gene sets generated by four statistical tests for three different microarray experiments.

From: Literature aided determination of data quality and statistical significance threshold for gene expression studies

   LCI    LBFS  
Gene list PGC-1beta IL2 ET1 PGC-1beta IL2 ET1
Welch t-Test 0.34 0.34 0.17 7.08E-06 0.0004 0.45
Mann-Whitney 0.2 0.2 0.13 0.118 0.0075 1
