Cross platform TE-array validation. A) NanoString probes were designed for 30 candidate TE regions shown to be differentially expressed in at least one tissue by TE-Array. Discrete transcript counts were obtained for individual tissues and for the somatic pool. Log2 ratios of transcript counts were compared to TE-array M values. B) RNAseq reads were aligned to the 30 candidate TE regions. Log2 ratios of tissue read counts were generated in comparison to an in silico pool; these are plotted on the X-axis, and M values from TE-array are plotted on the Y-axis.
