  1. Top 10 significantly enriched experimental sets and canonical pathways in poor clinical outcomes vs good outcomes were inferred by GAGE using these three different comparison schemes from two published lung adenocarcinoma data sets [3]. Data columns are overlap between top 10 gene sets for the two studies, top 10 p-values, number of top 10 gene sets related to metastasis (bt) and tumor (t and bt), and numbers of significant gene sets with p-value ≤ 0.001 (or with FDR q-value ≤ 0.01).
