Table 2 Comparisons of results from statistical analyses (contrasts), “Focus of analysis” explains the focus of the comparison

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

  1. “Comparison” specifies contrasts used in the comparison; see Table 1 and Fig. 1. “Direction” specifies if the significant probes (p < 0.05, Table 1) are expressed in the same or in the opposite direction between contrasts; hence, “Same” gives the number of probes where the logFC was positive or negative in both contrasts; “Opposite” gives the number of probes where the logFC was positive in one contrast and negative in the other. “Pearson” and “Spearman” give the Pearson and Spearman correlations, respectively, for the logFC values of all probes in the two contrasts used in the comparison
