From: Gene expression profiling of Naïve sheep genetically resistant and susceptible to gastrointestinal nematodes

  Resistant (16) Susceptible (25) Array (8809) Fisher exact score
Proportion of genes with significant combination of resistant motifs 0.50 0.00 0.05 4.7 × 10-7
Proportion of genes with significant combination of susceptible motifs 0.06 0.44 0.08 4.6 × 10-6
  1. Proportion of promoter regions which contain the combination of motifs detected by MEME with P < 0.0001. Numbers in parenthesis represent the total number of genes in each group. In both cases the combination of motifs is found more frequently in the group in which it was originally identified. The significance of this is given by Fisher's exact score.
