Table 1 Threshold values for steps in integrative analysis of Plasmodium falciparum data

From: Integrative analysis of intraerythrocytic differentially expressed transcripts yields novel insights into the biology of Plasmodium falciparum

Criterion and acceptable range
Reconstructed transcript derived from minimum of 5 ESTs
Agreement of pairwise differential expression statistics at P < 0.05
Maximum BLASTX E-value of 10-10 against predicted proteins
Correlation of functional annotation with Plasmodium falciparum gene indices
Evidence that protein is expressed in same stage as gene
Gene Ontology classification: proteolysis, glycolysis or localised to plastid
Microarray: Published data on a gene family
