  1. These are the significant GO Slim categories representing both biological process and molecular function ontologies for population specific significantly over-expressed (P ≤ 0.05; no multiple test correction) features. For each significant GO category, we include the P value number of over-expressed genes in that GO, percentage of representation in the over-expressed list, number of features of that GO in the microarray, and percentage of representation on the entire microarray.
