Figure S5. Histogram reporting 1153 distance values between the transcription termination sites determined using RNA-seq and the closest rho-independent terminator. Positive values indicate that termination site determined with RNA-seq is upstream of the predicted rho-independent terminator. The size of the 3-UTRs is slightly underestimated in RNA-seq, in fact the distribution is centered on positive values (28 bp) and the size of the 3-UTRs determined considering the terminator is generally larger than that determined with RNA-seq.
