Ranked quantification of OR ectopic expression. A, B. Dually sorted matrices show ectopic expression for human (A) and mouse (B) OR genes. For every OR (rows) representing probesets were sorted according to the expression intensity, so the tissue with the highest expression level for that gene is on the right. The separate column(s) on the right represent the functional tissue(s): olfactory bulb in A and olfactory bulb (left) and epithelium (right) in B. The rows were sorted according to the row mean expression level (bottom is highest). Data included and expression color scale as in Figure 2. C, D. The mean expression level intensity (pink squares) and the entropy (blue diamonds) for each ranked position and for the functional tissue in human (C) and mouse (D).
