Numbers of significant associations found by the extended Local Similarity Analysis (eLSA) and Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient (PCC) by controlling both the p-value (P) and the q-value (Q). The p-values for eLSA were evaluated by permutations and p-values for PCC was calculated based on the t-distribution.
