Figure 5.

Some age-dependent DE genes discovered in the Colantuoni dataset. The plot in the centre of the figure shows the distribution of the rL/rC and rPL/rL of the 31 genes profiled in the Colantuoni dataset. Based on this plot, seven genes exhibit strong support for a linear age-dependent DE pattern, and three genes have moderate support for a non-linear age-dependent DE pattern. The expression profile of these 10 genes, along with their three fitted quantile regression lines.
