Figure 7 Gene expression differences in sperm and oocytes

 

A. Scatterplot of representative comparison between two fem-1/fem-3 experiments. for each experiment, the natural logarithm of the fem-1/fem-3 ratio is plotted. RNAs expressed at different levels in the fem-1 and fem-3 strains appear along a diagonal axis. RNAs that are not expressed at different levels appear randomaly scattered around the origin. There are approximately 3885 genes present in the upper left and lower right quadrant from all five experiments, approximately 8035 genes present in the upper right and lower left quadrant, and thus approximately 4150 more genes than would be predicted by random scatter.

 

B. Scatterplot of RNAs that differ by less than two-fold between the same two fem-1/fem-3 experiments shown in A, showing non-random scatter near the origin. There are approximately 1600 more genes in the upper right and lower left quadrants than would be predicted by random scatter.
