Distribution of different expression levels for all T. brucei nuclear genes. A. Heatmap showing the signals obtained for cBF, slender BF (SL-BF), stumpy BF (ST-BF), PF-log), and PF-stat. B. Density plot of gene level intensities for nuclear protein-coding genes. Blue line, PF-stat; red line, cBF; dashed red line, cBF signals from the multicopy probe-sets. The points mark the signals in cBF corresponding to the percentile rank indicated. C. Distribution of protein-coding gene categories varies according to expression level. The maximal expression level (Tukey mean) for each gene was ranked. Genes encoding proteins with an ascribed function or location are included in the functional category, the remaining genes were divided into those specific to T. brucei (unknown Tb) and those conserved in at least one other species (unknown cons).
