The most 3' interrogative locations of the above assays are indicated by the distance to the 3' end of the corresponding gene. The probing locations of the assays for technologies other than RT2 Profiler PCR Arrays are available from the supplementary information provided by the MAQC study [8,12]. Assays with discordant results compared to those of PCR Arrays are underlined and in bold.
