Distributions of structural properties for sncRNAs. Histogram of plasticity (P), mutational and environmental robustness (Rand _{m }R) for the bacterial sncRNAs (blue bars) and for different samples (I, II and III)
of artificially constructed sequences (gray bars). _{e}U-tests were applied to assess the statistical significance of the distributions. For
P, the P-values of samples I, II and III are 8·10^{-12}, 10^{-4 }and 0.0016, respectively. For R, the P-values of the three samples are 7·10_{m}^{-16}, 2·10^{-12 }and 0.38, respectively. For R, the P-values of the three samples are 5·10_{e}^{-13}, 3·10^{-10 }and 0.82, respectively.
