Table III Average experimental thresholds as VSN ratio and -fold change that would encompass either 95 or 90% of naturally occurring technical variation for both same-same Erwinia data sets

The average threshold was calculated for each data set as with four tags there are seven possible pairwise comparisons, and a 95% confidence interval is reported to give a measure of consistency. This analysis was completed where no filtering had occurred beyond the peptides being unique for a protein and the peptide being confident in its assignment to a protein.
