1A module was differentially co-expressed when the pairwise correlations were not random in one condition (p < 0.05) and random in the other condition (p > 0.3) [6]. The conditions were high or low sire EBV status for EMD. HM, high muscling EBV; LM, low muscling EBV.

2The P-value is a measure of the significance that a module differs from random.
