Table 1 Contrasts produced from comparing expression profiles in PAXgene and Tempus tubes

From: Gene expression differences between PAXgene and Tempus blood RNA tubes are highly reproducible between independent samples and biobanks

  1. “Contrast” enumerates the five statistical comparisons specified by “Experiment” and “Protocol”; see Fig. 1. “Sign. probes” are the number of probes on the Illumina microarray (total probes: 47323) with significantly different signals in PAXgene compared with Tempus (* p < 0.05); “Sign. Transcripts” are the number of distinct transcripts targeted by the significant probes
