Comparison of the probing locations for the discordant genes between RT2 Profiler PCR Arrays and other gene expression measurement platforms in the MAQC phase 1 study. The diagram illustrates the most 3' interrogative locations of the assays of different platforms for the eight discordant genes discussed in the text and shown in Table 6. The black lines represent, from left to right, the 5' to 3' position of the genes, each indicated with the length of the transcript. The assay location of each platform is indicated by a letter above the black line (A = RT2 Profiler PCR Array; B = TaqMan; C = StaRT-PCR; D = QuantiGene; E = AFX; F = ABI; G = AG1; H = GEH; and I = ILM). Assays with discordant results compared to those of PCR Arrays are highlighted in grey.
