The MSigDB Perturbation [1] ontology contains gene sets that represent gene expression signatures of genetic and chemical perturbations. A number of these gene sets come in pairs: an xxx_UP (xxx_DN) gene set representing genes induced (repressed) by the perturbation.


Statistics can now be found in the footers of each table in the GREAT web output.


All ontology data was downloaded and built between Oct 14, 2011 and Feb 18, 2012.
