Each type of analysis set has its own definition. Category based annotations are straightforward (e.g., gene ontology and gene age). Gene expression sets are the significantly differentially expressed genes and uses a genome wide p-val correction with a 0.05 cutoff. Selection uses the top 5% and bottom 5% of genes for dN and dS. dN/dS has a raw set and a filtered set. It is possible to have very large dN/dS values due to very small dS values, so the filtered set omits genes in the bottom 5% of dS.
