Number of DEGs in each experiment detected by significance level. We performed Welch t-test (A), BH (Benjamini-Hochberg) method with p-value of Welch t-test (B) and Wilcoxon rank sum test (C) against 209 datasets with four significance level (0.001, 0.005, 0.01, 0.05). The 209 datasets, chosen from 289 datasets in this paper consist of control and treatment groups, each of which has two or more samples so that we can calculate the variance. The x-axis is the dataset sorted by the number of DEGs. The y-axis is the number of DEGs in each dataset. Performance of our two-way AIC is shown as (D).
