Figure 4 .

Comparing the p-values and ranks of the target pathways between gene set analysis methods when analyzing 229 KEGG non-metabolic and metabolic pathways. The boxplots show the distribution of the target pathways p-value (left panel) and ranks (middle panel), as well as the paired difference in ranks with respect to GSA, chosen as reference method (right panel). The lower the p-values, ranks and ranks differences, the better method.
