Figure 2

Scatter plots showing exons with various numbers of antisense reads at different fractions of sense reads from the strand-specific libraries. The fraction of sense reads was plotted against the number of antisense reads from late trophozoites (LT), schizonts (Sc), gametocyte stage II (GII), and gametocyte stage V (GV) for each of the 14,777 exons in the genome. Green dots represent exons with a high number of antisense reads (> 150) and low level of sense fraction (< 0.3), and reds dots are those with high levels of sense fraction (> 0.7) and antisense reads (> 150 reads).
