Performance of rediscovering disease genes by DER. Genes with DER ≥ 0.55 were predicted to be disease genes, and compared with genes with disease-associated DNA variants listed in GAD and HGMD. P values were calculated using Fisher's exact test. DER, differential expression ratio; GAD, Genetic Association Database; GEO, Gene Expression Omnibus; HGMD, Human Gene Mutation Database.
