Correlation coefficients between genes in a given GO category depend on the experiments being used.
Distribution of correlation coefficients for genes in the GO category GO:009753 “Response to Jasmonic Acid stimulus” calculated using (A) an heterogeneous collection of 44 experiments and (B) a manually selected set of two experiments, which were deemed to be functionally relevant to jasmonic acid response based upon literature knowledge. Only statistically significant correlation coefficients (p-value<0.05) were considered in order to account for the different vector lengths.
