  1. χ2 test of independence: * P < 0.05, ** P < 0.005, *** P < 0.0005. aOnly those categories containing more than 5% of the annotated genes are shown. bThe total number of classifications is greater than the total number of genes since each gene is usually classified under different categories. This number is used to calculate the proportions showed between parentheses.
