Histogram of ratio of length of containing segment to gene length. The median ratio is 16 and there is an apparent boundary to the distribution at a ratio around 1. The interquartile range of the ratio is [4.4, 72]. The x-axis is plotted using logs to base 10. The number of genes in the plot is 23878. The segment bias operates on a larger scale than the transcription bias.
