## Figure 3.
Histograms of all correlation coefficients for each gene product obtained from each
of the three comparisons, and one showing those of randomly picked Ensembl ID pairs. Figures 3a – 3c show the RNA _{oligo }versus protein profiles, RNA _{cDNA }versus protein profiles, and the RNA _{oligo }versus RNA _{cDNA }profiles, which yielded mean correlation coefficients of 0.25, 0.20 and 0.52, respectively.
The distributions of correlation coefficients between RNA values obtained using both
RNA platforms and the protein values have Gaussian shapes, but with some bimodal characteristics,
in which most of the data points are centered at the respective mean, but shoulders
can be seen at correlation coefficients of ~0.5 – 0.7. For the RNA assay correlations
the distributions follow a beta distribution. The randomly picked pairs have a mean
value close to zero, indicating that there is no apparent bias in the data set.
