  1. Number of Affymetrix Probes in the Predicted Pseudo-exon: number of probes that are contained in a predicted alternatively spliced pseudo-exon. Nucleotide Positions of Predicted Pseudo-exon in the Gene: nucleotide positions of the pseudo-exon from the beginning of the gene it resides. Mean difference: Mean difference of the expression values between the two tissue types being compared for each predicted pseudo-exon in the t-test in STEP 2. Standard Error: the standard error calculated in the same t-test. Z-score: the ratio of mean difference over standard error (noise), a measure of significance of the difference between the two tissues being compared. The sign of the Z-scores indicate direction of the difference. A negative Z-score means a lower expression in metastatic medulloblastomas than in non-metastatic medulloblastomas, and vice-versa for a positive Z-score.
