[…] of go categories, diseases, phenotypes, pathways, and other features over-represented in the sets of differentially expressed genes, was performed using online analytical tools available in the lynx integrated system []. statistical significance was estimated using bayes factor and p-value calculated for each category under consideration. bonferroni correction was applied to the results […]

DOI: 10.1186/s13046-017-0651-9

[…] analysed, while specificity was defined as the ratio (1 - false positive)/(total tested - total positive)., enrichment analysis of gene ontology and molecular pathways was performed using the lynx systems biology tool []. all significance tests were two-sided, and a false discovery rate less than 0.05 was considered significant. biological network analysis was performed […]

PMCID: 5516010
PMID: 28720766
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-05878-w

[…] multiqc, samtools, and bioawk ( we used r for all statistics and data visualization. we obtained gene annotation information from the ensembl and lynx databases. the computational resources were provided by the university of chicago research computing center. all code is available for viewing and reuse […]
