Table 3 Comparison of SAM and iGA performance on noisy lymphocyte data. The cells were obtained from elicitor-treated animals and show an expression pattern indicative of immune system activation. For iGA the genes on the array were annotated by Gene Ontology terms and keywords extracted from gene names.
