Hi Danny,

I've looked into how these functions were coded. They use different 
functions to categorize genes, hence the different numbers. The next 
version of limmaGUI released with R2.10 in October will use similar 
functions. I will email when the developer version is available that 
produces matching results for Venn diagrams and toptables. Thanks for 
pointing this out,
