Clusters listed in Additional file 1 were subject to Gene Ontology analysis http://david.abcc.ncifcrf.gov/ webcite to determine the extent of enrichment of biological function among genes in each cluster. Clusters sharing biological functions were grouped together according to the function. Shown in the table are enriched functional classes with enrichment p-value < 0.01 and shared by more than 20% of the genes in the cluster.
