Determination of mutual information statistical significance. P-values are assigned to MI thresholds using a Monte Carlo simulation for different kernel widths, sample sizes (M) and for 105 gene pairs so that reliable estimates are produced up to p = 10-4 (solid lines). Extrapolation to smaller p-values is done using
