  1. Both Slk = uncorrected Stouffer-Liptak-Kechris P values, and Sidak P values corrected for multiple testing are reported. Here, 5′UTR = 5 prime untranslated region; TSS200 = 0–200 bases upstream from the transcription start sites; TSS1500 = 200–1500 bases upstream from the transcriptional start site; body = gene body
