  1. a This set of genes was extracted from the full data set (n = 2012) by use of a SAM procedure and a false discovery rate of 0%.
  2. b Significant results with a Fischer exact test (P < 0.05).
  3. c GO terms that were also over-represented in the set of 177 significant CM genes.
  4. d Significant results with the Benjamini multi-testing correction (P < 0.05).
