Proteomics comparisons of ApcMin+/− adenoma and top and bottom of crypts

The WFCCM was used to select the statistically significant peaks that allowed the classification of the three groups of samples. The classification accuracies were calculated using the leave-one-out cross-validation classification methods. CI, confidence interval.
