  1. After generation of modules in both types of adipose tissue, the overlap in gene content of the 10 largest modules in VAT and SAT was determined. As an example, modules VAT 2 and SAT 1 are largely the same since approximately 75% of the genes present in one of these modules is also present in the other. For most, although not all, of the modules in one adipose tissue there is a similar module in the other adipose tissue. P-values to determine the significance of the overlap between the modules were performed using a Fisher's exact test: *1: p = 1.54 × 10-321; *2: p = 1.20 × 10-321; *3: p = 2.07 × 10-138; *4: p = 1.58 × 10-43; *5: p = 5.74 × 10-73; *6: p = 6.65 × 10-28; *7: p = 3.33 × 10-23; *8: p = 2.16 × 10-107; *9: p = 1.33 × 10-89. Genes within module SAT 10 overlap with genes within module VAT 11 (not shown).
