  1. a The Z-score determines whether a TFBS occurs more frequently in the set of co-expressed genes compared to pre-computed background set provided by the package.
  2. b The Fisher score (one-tailed Fisher exact) is calculated to determine the probability of non-random association between the co-expressed genes and the TFBS site of interest.
  3. c The number of genes in the differentially expressed gene set that could be aligned to the pre-computed background.
