Figure 4

Gene co-expression network of modules in subcutaneous adipose tissue correlated to a trait. Genes in a module that have an individual Pearson correlation coefficient >0.65 are connected. Genes that are individually correlated (p < 0.01) to the metabolic trait to which the whole module is correlated are shown in red (HDL), purple (glucose), yellow (triglycerides), or green (both glucose and triglycerides). The CD86 and TNFSF13B genes are present in both modules SAT 4 and SAT 8 because different probes targeting this gene are highly correlated to different modules.
