## Figure 2.
Adjacent introns tend to be lost together. The X-axis represents the pairs or clusters of adjacent intron losses and the Y-axis
represents their probability of appearance when each intron is lost independently.
(A) The probability distributions of the loss of adjacent intron pairs. In a case of n lost adjacent introns, the adjacent intron pairs were counted as n - 1. (B) The probability distributions of the loss of intron clusters. The cluster was defined
as one or more adjacent introns. For more details of the method, see reference [20]. The observed patterns (marked by circles) have very small probabilities of occurrence
via independent loss of each intron.
