  1. 1Parameter values are shown for the MA, NI and their corresponding random networks. For each network, the number of nodes (genes) and edges is shown along with average ± standard deviations of the node degree <k>, clustering coefficient <C>, path length <l>, eccentricity <e> and betweeness <b>. 2Average coexpression network parameter values were compared using the Students' ttest; resulting t- and P-values are shown.
