Table 1 Percentage of sequences with low P-values

From: Fast selection of miRNA candidates based on large-scale pre-computed MFE sets of randomized sequences

Data set Total # sequences analyzed % sequences with an error/not found % sequences with P <0.05 % sequences with P <0.01 % sequences with P < =0.001 % sequences with P < =0.0001
Random 250000 21.3 3.0 1.5 0.8 0.5
MirBase 15172 1.0 89.9 84.4 75.9 66.8
EBV known miRNAs 25 0.0 96.0 92.0 88.0 76.0
EBV genome 566988 0.1 19.1 10.7 5.7 3.6
  1. This table shows the percentage of sequences below the given P-value in four different data sets. A data set of random sequences shows a very low percentage with a P-value < = 0.001. A high percentage of known miRNAs sequences is within the same range.
