[…] those mirnas in each brain region with ≥2 replicates detected as present for further analyses., comparison of the mirna expression levels measured by mirna-seq and microarray was performed with the orderedlist package implemented in r/bioconductor. for this test, we ranked mirnas from mirna-seq and microarray data separately based on their expression levels in fcx and in hp (normalized count […]

[…] stouffer’s z score test. significance of correlation was reported as asymptotic p of spearman’s ρ. the similarity of gene lists in the meta-analysis of multi-omics data sets was compared using the orderedlist package (v.2.4) in r/bioconductor. significance of functional enrichment was reported as hypergeometric test p with benjamini–hochberg adjustment. the significance of protein–protein […]

[…] (419 * 418 = 175,142 comparisons). for each gene list comparison, we found the number of overlapping genes and calculated an overlap similarity score based on the weighted rank order of the lists (“orderedlist” package in r). we then generated a null distribution of similarity scores by shuffling gene lists 10 million times and calculated p values for observed similarity scores. we found […]

[…] was created in cytoscape [] and its multicolorednodes plug-in []. the overall similarity of differential expression signatures between rcmd vs. control and raeb vs. control was assessed using the orderedlist r package [], which does not rely on a simple overlap of degs but instead considers the complete ordering of all genes in the two differential expression signatures to assess […]

[…] the changes in expression of genes in human ad versus healthy skin from ad patients or healthy subjects were compared with those of orthologous genes in mouse eczematous versus healthy skin, using orderedlist algorithm (; ). this analysis detected significant similarity in gene expression in the skin between human ad and mouse ad-like dermatitis ( and ). the top genes contributing to 95% […]

[…] were common to both. a test for similarities in ordered gene lists was then performed on the two lists using the orderedlists software package (http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/orderedlist.html) within the bioconductor r environment. a test of the significance of their ordering by fold change was performed, and in the top 500 genes a p-value of ≤0.000 was obtained (this […]
