Table 2 Enriched ontologies that were not present in the original EDGE selection, but appeared when examining the subset that did not pass LOOCV after EDGE, and the subset that passed both LOOCV and EDGE.

  1. It is evident that in all cases the subset that passed both LOOCV and EDGE introduced more additional ontologies. Furthermore, one of the interesting observations is that through the rejection of a population of genes, we are better able to see evidence of biological processes that are associated with inflammation, the immune response, metabolism, and injury (red) which are hallmarks of our experiments associated with the anti-inflammatory effects of corticosteroids or the response to a significant burn injury.
