Experiments selected by the algorithm improves correlations between gene pairs.
Distribution of correlation coefficients for genes in different GO BP terms when using the experiments selected by our algorithm (green) and when using all the experiments (red). Each quadrant shows a different GO BP term, two terms are for Arabidopsis and two for yeast. The p-values of the t-test between each pair of distributions indicate that the distributions of correlations for the selected experiments are significantly greater than the corresponding distributions for all experiments.
