Analysis of overlap among treatment groups
Treatment group # of significantly, differentially regulated transcripts p-value (Fisher's Exact Test)
Colony 1 Colony 2 In both
Saline x Control 340 555 111 p < 0.001
Bead x Control 213 398 70 p < 0.001
Bacteria x Control 278 1198 117 p < 0.001
Total *557 *1453 *206

Fisher exact tests found more overlap than expected (p<0.001) for significantly, differentially expressed transcripts (FDR<0.01) in the saline-, bead- and bacteria-injected vs control groups between the two colonies.

*duplicate transcripts between groups removed.
