The most differentially expressed genes using conventional gene expression analysis overlap between the three studies
p-values
Group Top 100 Genes* Top 250 Genes Top 500 Genes
Finnish Twins, Mexicans 2.81 × 10-33 2.01 × 10-69 6.51 × 10-103
METSIM, Finnish Twins 3.27 × 10-6 5.96 × 10-7 5.22 × 10-10
METSIM, Mexicans 2.11 × 10-4 2.48 × 10-5 2.24 × 10-8

*Genes were sorted in descending order by the difference in the average normalized gene expression values between the high and low TG groups. The overlap p-values were calculated using a two-tail Fisher’s exact test. All p-values pass the Bonferroni correction for the nine statistical tests performed (p-value<5.6 x 10-3).
