Inter-module relations of 300 modules. Inter-module relations of 300 modules: the coordinate (i, j) in lower diagonal where i >j (1 ≤ i, j ≤ 300) represents the gene overlap () between X_{g} and m_{i} . On the other hand, the upper diagonal coordinate where m_{j}i <j represents the sample overlap (). The gray-scale indicates the degree of overlap; the darker the higher overlap.
Each square groups the modules which belong to the same type of inter-module relations;
independent, conditionally co-regulated, separately co-regulated, and similar. The
modules in the square tagged independent or similar are characterized as ‘externally
exclusive’ to other (outside) modules but ‘internally similar’ with the modules grouped
together. Both aspects of independent and similar are represented as darker gray-values
within the square but lighter ones outside the square. It implies the genes are tightly
associated only with specific samples (experimental conditions).
