Differential expression statistics, by length. Boxplots of the ranks of DE statistics vs. gene lengths for UI genes at least 250 bp-long and with non-zero counts in both Brain and UHR. (a) Delta method t-statistics. (b) Delta method t-statistics weighted by the inverse of the square root of gene length.
