Table 3 Pathway information for clusters showing evidence of experiment-wide significant and suggestive linkage

From: Exploration of non-hierarchical classification methods combined with linkage analysis to identify loci influencing clusters of co-regulated transcripts

  1. aPathway information using KEGG and GenMAPP were provided in the Problem 1 data set. Pathways with more than one gene are given with the exception of the cluster 76 (inflammatory pathway).
  2. bPathways with more than one gene are given, except for cluster 82, which has 21 pathways with two genes. Information on pathways with ≥ 3 genes are given (with the exception of the blood group glycolipid biosynthesis and apoptosis pathways).
  3. cStatistically significantly associated with clusters.
  4. dPathways common to both approaches are given in bold font.
  5. eThese pathways represent two genes and have been included to show overlap between resources.
