The null hypothesis and the interpretation of tested probesets.

Null hypothesis

Interpretation when null hypothesis is rejected


H0: A = 0

The expression profile of certain genes is modified in response to the surrounding temperature.

H0: B = 0

The expression profile of the gene is modified by the change of water movement.

H0: C = 0

The expression profile of the gene is modified by dissolved oxygen level.

H0: D = 0

The expression profile of the gene is modified by byssogenic activity.
