Table S1. Fold difference and p-value for each of 127 genes, grouped by cluster, that showed a significant group x time interaction (i.e. difference in degree or direction of change between lithium-responders and non-responders) after FDR correction for multiple testing , and a fold-difference ≥ 1.3 between lithium responders and non-responders at least one time-point after treatment initiation.
