The M/Z values were sorted by M/Z values greater than 2,000 and p-values less than 10-6. Consecutive M/Z is the numerical order of the M/Z value between 1 and 15,154. The M/Z values were then binned as described in the text, and the most significant consecutive M/Z score from each of the 30 bins was selected. M/Z values that were selected by the stepwise discriminant analysis are designated "S" in the rightmost column.
