  1. Analysis of SSM count for genes expressed within specific tissues (TIGER database) or pathways (KEGG database). According to different thresholds, the number of gene pairs with an exceptional SSM count divided by total gene pairs was computed for genes either associated or not associated, within the same tissue or pathway. Data are expressed as a ratio between these two values, a ratio superior to 1 indicating an enrichment of gene pairs with an exceptional SSM number when genes are expressed in a same tissue or pathway(*, p ≤ 0.05)
