Histograms presenting the inter-sample scores for all sites passing initial analysis (a, b), the top 10 ranking sites (c, d) and the top ranking site (e, f), before (a, c, e) and after (b, d, f). Inter-sample scores were generated for all sample pairwise comparisons for omentum (OM) and subcutaneous abdominal adipose (AB). Same tissue comparisons (i.e. OM vs OM and AB vs AB) would need to score more highly than contra-tissue comparisons (OM vs AB) for a useful discriminatory panel of markers. An ideal panel would show no overlap between same and contra-group comparisons
