*All the genes in the external list were used in a model to predict the tissue type (tumor or normal) in our data set to calculate the % correct rate. For all models, nearest centroid with equal prior probability was used as classification method. ** Gene lists are combined from Su et al [20], Yu et al [21] and Ramaswami et al.[19]
