  1. †The significance of association for the GO enrichment analysis was determined by the Benjamini-Yekuteli FDR method for multiple comparisons. The variability of expression was determined by a frequency distribution of the coefficients of variation for probe sets across the arrays in the small healthy follicle group. The cut-off chosen was a coefficient of variation of > 46.8% (n = 10 arrays, n = 682 probe sets).
