Figure 5.

Examples of differentially expressed genes and splice forms. Box plots of the mean log ratio obtained from multiple probes in each strain-sex group for a single gene. The solid horizontal line across the length of the graph represents the average gene expression. The two dashed horizontal lines mark plus and minus two standard deviations from the average gene expression, respectively. For the boxes, from bottom to top, the solid horizontal lines represent the minimum mean log10 expression ratios excluding outliers, the lower quartile, the median, the upper quartile and the maximum mean log10 expression ratios excluding outliers. The dashed vertical lines represent the range of mean log10 expression ratios excluding outliers. Outliers are defined as any data-points having values extending beyond 1.5 times the interquartile range from either ends of the box. A) Box plots of 2310008M10Rik showing strain effect (p-value < 1 × 10-16); B) Box plot of adh4 showing sex effect (p-value < 1 × 10-16). C) Boxplots of rhoQ, exon 4 showing strain effect (p-value < 1 × 10-16); D) Boxplots of pitpnm1, exon 21 showing sex effect (p-value < 1 × 10-16)
