The genes of demo list 2 were analyzed by the Functional Annotation Clustering Tool. The top 20 annotation clusters out of 65 total clusters have group enrichment scores less than or equal to 0.05 (equivalent to 1.3 in minus log scale). The clusters are ordered by group enrichment score. The representative biology terms associated with the top 20 annotation clusters are manually selected, showing a much clearer and non-redundant view of the annotation terms associated with the study.
