In cases where multiple, related terms within a GO hierarchy were significant, only a single term is given. The complete list is provided in Additional file 3. Ontology abbreviations are: MF, molecular function; BP, biological process. P-values were determined by a hypergeometric test with Benjamini-Hochberg multiple-test correction.
