## Figure 3.
Boxplots for reference sample CT distributions of the 761 genes at time points throughout
the study. These boxplots show averaged expression values of all 761 genes over the duration
of the study. The bottom edge of the box represents the 25^{th }percentile of the data while the top edge of the boxplot represents the 75^{th }percentile. The line inside the box represents the 50^{th }percentile of the data or the median and the symbol + represents the mean. The distance
between the 25^{th }and 75^{th }percentiles is defined as the Inter Quartile Range (IQR). A whisker extends from the
upper edge of the box to the largest value that is inside a distance of 1.5*IQR. Similarly,
a whisker extends from the lower edge of the box to the smallest values inside a distance
of 1.5*IQR. Observations outside the fences of 1.5*IQR are marked by a square. The
first boxplot represents data from the 3 assay repeats used to set a baseline, all
other boxplots represent a single assay run. Overall, the C_{T }distributions of the 761 genes assayed in the reference sample were stable throughout
the study.
