Expression patterns for significant genes are shown.
Left: Artificially constructed templates (A. Sustained; B. Transient; C. Delayed, and D. Linear) were used to partition genes into specified patterns. The treatment group mean expression value for each significant gene was correlated with each of the four templates and the gene was assigned to the template with the highest |R|. Positive correlations are considered ‘increased’ with SD, negative correlations are considered ‘decreased’. Center: Heatmap for 10 representative genes assigned to each template and direction are shown. Data are expressed in standardized units and color coded (lower, color scale) by standard deviations from the mean. Right: Averaged results for all genes in each template are graphed (positive = solid green; negative = dashed orange; # genes in each pattern reported). Note: error bars plotted but obscured by symbols.
