Retinal gene expression. (a) The retina-specific gene expression signature was extracted from Figure 1 and is displayed similarly. Many of the array elements encode uncharacterized genes and only a subset of named genes is shown. (b) Macula versus peripheral retina gene expression. Using the statistical analysis of microarrays algorithm as described in Materials and methods, we selected genes that differed significantly between the central and peripheral retinal arrays at a false discovery rate <0.05.
