Distribution of differentially expressed or spliced candidates. (a) Number of genes that show significant expression changes between placental and embryonic tissues and between development stages, as well as the overlap between the two sets. (b) Individual probe sets that are differentially expressed compared to their transcripts between tissues and between stages. (c) Number of genes that contain at least one alternatively spliced exon when comparing embryo or placentas, or between developmental days. (d) Comparison of the percentage of tissue- or stage-dependent differentially alternatively spliced genes, or either, in three different subsets of differentially expressed genes: all, tissue-specific or stage-specific.
