Transcription of chimeric mRNAs in liver samples. (A) Count of validated chimeric events as grouped according to the count of liver samples. A fusion junction mapped by junction reads derived from at least three different start positions or at least three samples was considered a validated chimeric event. (B) Distribution of unique chimeric events along the CV. The CV is the percentage ratio of the sample standard deviation to the sample mean of the junction reads for each event. The 87 unique chimeric events were put in eight bins according to the CV.
