Figure 5

Variability of detected splicing events across platforms. The Gene Array and Exon Array show a modest amount of overlap of detected splicing events as measured using SI (blue) and t-test (red). However, both metrics perform visibly better than what is expected by random chance (black). As the total number of exons being considered increases, the overlap reaches saturation. The subplot provides a zoomed-in view of the top 5,000 candidates detected by both metrics. The dashed black line represents the x-y diagonal. Again, it should be noted that the lists produced using the fold-change method are more stable across platforms than the lists produced using the t-test.
