  1. aAs intermediate step in candidate gene prioritization, traits and biological processes (BPs) were associated using overrepresentation of biological processes found for genes connected with each trait in the rice Gramene QTL compendium.
  2. bOnly BP terms which were associated with less than 1% of the genes in the genome were used as input terms in our analysis (i.e., a filter on the maximum allowed generality of the biological process was applied).
