Genomic architecture of the eQTL study across the five A. thaliana chromosomes. (a) Expected numbers of DE transcripts/e-traits (y-axis) plotted against the marker location in mega bases (Mb) on the x-axis. (b) Parametric predicted distribution (red) and observed distribution (blue) of β-weights for the A. thaliana data were measured for marker 73 on chromosome 4. The observed distribution showed a large deviation from the predicted distribution. (c) Expression levels of the 18 transcript with weights less than 0.003 (i.e., w < .003). The log-transformed expressions are plotted below the lines for marker genotype “B” and above the lines or marker genotype “A”. Outliers with low β-weights are indicated in red.
