The size distribution of simulated exon (logarithmic scale) for each choice of dependency value (α) is shown in Additional file 1: Figure S4. Each distribution is fitted with equation (3) and (4) separately. The normal function fitting is shown as dashed line. The Weibull function fitting is shown as a solid line.
