Highly tissue-biased genes show a skewed representation on the X chromosome. The ratio of microarray signal intensities observed between the tissue sample indicated at bottom including midgut, malpigian tubule, accessory gland, salivary gland, head, and ovary and a panel of other tissue samples [24] was used as a measure of tissue bias. The bars correspond to the frequencies of the genes on the X chromosome normalized against the genome averages, and are shown for the genes with at least two-fold expression bias toward indicated tissues (light gray), for the genes with at least five-fold bias (dark gray), and for highly biased genes with at least ten-fold bias (black).
