Table 1 Comparison of Wilcoxon and Globaltest.

From: Gene set analysis methods applied to chicken microarray expression data

  Wilcoxon (p-value < 0.05) Global Asymptotic Global Permutation
   p-value < 0.05 Common with wilcoxon in top 15 Common with wilcoxon (p-value < 0.05) p-value < 0.05 Common with wilcoxon (p-value < 0.05)

  1. For Wilcoxon and Globaltest with the two p-value estimation methods the numbers of terms with p-value below 0.05 are given. The number of terms with p-values below 0.05 for each method and overlapping between Wilcoxon and Globaltest are shown as well. For Globaltest with Asymptotic p-value calculation the top 15 terms overlapping with the top 15 for Wilcoxon are shown.
