  1. Contingency tables show the relationship between the pattern of motifs in the core promoter region and the expression patterns of genes in the test group (n = 3473), not used during motif the discovery procedure. The correlation thresholds were set to r > 0.8 (high) and r < 0 (low). The odds ratio measures the strength of association between the pattern of motifs in each promoter and the pattern of expression. The 95% confidence interval of the odds ratio is shown in parentheses. The p-value calculated using Fisher's exact test is given in the bottom row.
