  1. The Gene Ontology analysis is based on the 11 most significant GO categories (adjusted p-values < 0.05) obtained after bootstrapped BGA. The results present the proportion of genes that belong to these GO categories (%) and the enrichment significance (p-values are adjusted using the Benjamini-Hochberg method [30]), after bootstrapped BGA, bootstrapped CA and ANOVA.
