Upon a re-analysis of the data, there were errors in the p-values reported in Table 1 and Table 2. The revised p-values for Tables 1 and 2 are as follows:
Table 1 Individual p-values: TG: 0.910 ; DR: 0.434; TS: 0.79; AD: 0.539; SG: 0.089. Aggregated p-value of 0.512
Table 2 Individual p-values: MG: 0.021; LT: 0.0004; KF: 0.2891; KM: 1.54 10-5; NH: 0.0004; CC: 0.146; AM: 0.0034; CS: 0.0063; JB: 0.0004; VC: 0.146; AD: 0.0385. Aggregate probability : < 2.2 10-16.
