  1. a Q1 is the RPKM value at the first quartile. Q1 is defined as the middle number between the smallest number and the median (i.e., the second quartile Q2), if the data numbers (in this case RPKM values) are ordered from smallest to largest. The third quartile (Q3) is the middle value between the median (Q2) and the maximum (Max) value
  2. b Adjusted P-values from Wilcoxon signed-rank test, to test if Q2 values (median) of genes located on the upper half of Chr 1 are significantly different from Q2 values of genes located on the lower half. Values below 0.05 are considered significant
