  1. Number of differentially expressed genes between macrophage and monocyte samples using different criteria for selecting lists. The analysis was performed on the subset of well-matched transcripts common to the three platforms [see Additional file 5] for the number of probes included in this analysis for each platform).
  2. # adjusted P-value (Pc) of the moderated t test.
  3. ## adjusted P-value of the moderated t test combined to fold change (FC).
  4. ### best overlapping lists of genes among platforms (see results section for details).
