  1. Note: m = the size of gene set; c p = censoring proportion; m p = the proportion of significant genes in a gene set. GSEA1 = GSEA ith the equal weight; GSEA2 = weighted GSEA; GT = Global Test; WT = Wald-type Test; GBST = Global Boost Test. For Case (I), all genes are independent; for Case (II), there is within-correlation among significant genes; for Case (III), there is an autoregressive correlation between significant genes; and for Case (IV), there is an unstructured correlation between significant genes
