|Consistency in detection of differential expression between quantities of starting RNA|
|test experiment||250 ng||100 ng||50 ng|
For the numbers of bead-types for which differential expression between UHRR and Brain was detected we report "X/Y" where X is the proportion of bead-types reported for the reference experiment also reported for the test experiment (e.g. a measure sensitivity), and Y is the proportion of bead-types reported by the test experiment that were not reported by the reference experiment (e.g. FDR). So for example, taking 250 ng as a gold-standard, for this detection measure the 100 ng experiment has 86% sensitivity and an FDR of 0.06.
