[…] the benjamini–hochberg method (41)., differentially expressed genes were analyzed to assess enrichment for kegg, go bp, cc, and mf terms using the conditional hypergeometric test implemented in the gostats r package (function: hypergtest) (42). annotated kegg pathway diagrams were drawn using the pathview r package (43). enrichment of medical subject heading (mesh) terms was evaluated using […]

[…] genes in the adjacency matrix to search for enriched functional annotation. human homologs of these genes were retrieved, and used to evaluate enrichment of the go biological process branch using gostats [39]. to account for the false positives resulting from the multiple testing, we used a false discovery rate (fdr) [40] of ≤35% in holstein and jersey. we used fdr ≤ 60% in brown swiss due […]

[…] factors was performed using the yeastract database (39). analyses of correlations between data sets and of gene ontology enrichment were performed in r (66) using the base package and the gostats bioconductor package (67). analysis of growth curves obtained from the plate reader experiments was performed in r using the grofit package (68)., microarray data from this study […]

[…] the fold change of fpkm was computed, and genes with the over or equal to 2-fold change were characterized as degs. functional enrichment analyses were then performed on identified degs by using gostats [29]. for gene ontology and kegg pathway analysis, we used hypergeometric test function (p value < 0.001) [30]., with the rnapure high-purity total rna rapid extraction kit (bioteke), […]

[…] cells were statistically selected using deseq2 software (|log2fc|>1, fdr<0.05). go terms over-represented in the gene list selected by deseq2 were retrieved by hypergeometric tests using gostats 2.36.0 of r3.2.2 with the annotation packages go.db 3.2.2 and org.mm.eg.db 3.2.3. pathway analysis was performed by hypergeometric tests of differentially expressed genes using keggprofile […]
