  1. Functional gene sets are shown which show enrichment in the list of genes negatively correlated with a template showing peak expression in the 15–25 age range. Related gene sets as defined by leading edge analysis are grouped together in column 2 and the range of q values for these gene sets is indicated. Gene sets/groups of gene sets which are functionally associated but are composed of non-overlapping genes in the leading edge are indicated by headings in column 1. A full detailed list of significant gene sets can be found in Additional File 3.
