  1. The fraction of affected biological processes in the investigated tissues, grouped into parental biological processes. The numbers are calculated as the fraction of affected processes per parental process and per injected activity divided by the total number of processes affected per injected activity and tissue. The number of biological processes is given in parenthesis.
