Dear Colin,

The computed correlation value is a Pearson correlation.  As you probably know, you can convert that correlation to a p-value based on the number of samples (which depends on the data set you are looking at) and something like this Table D:

Glad you are finding BioGPS useful!

Hello,

First, your site is awesome! Thank you! 

I have a question regarding some additional statistics for your gene correlation. Once I have my gene of choice I go to the gene expression/activity chart and download the correlation file, but the only statistic you give me is the r value. Do all of your presented correlations have a standard p-value (0.05 or 0.01)? And can I find any additional statistics regarding the correlation? 

Best,
