  1. The number of predicted miR-125a target genes found among the significantly up- and down-regulated genes in each tissue is shown for each algorithm and for the subset of targets predicted by more than one algorithm. In each case, the significance of the overlap (estimated false discovery rate) is calculated as the proportion of 10,000 random sets of non-miR-125 target genes of the same size showing equal or greater overlap.
