Brain -2.10 ± 0.04 -0.22 ± 0.01 0.62 0
Male 0.57 ± 0.02 -1.67 ± 0.12 0.29 0
Female 0.56 ± 0.02 -1.74 ± 0.13 0.3 0
  1. Also included in the table are the 95% confidence intervals for these coefficients, the coefficient of determination, R2 and the p-value for the goodness of fit F-test to the linear model. Note that the models are computed using data over those probe sets with mean expression greater than 6 in order to avoid analysis with noisy or low expression genes.
