EST inclusion level and symmetry. (a) EST inclusion levels for the three age groups. The x-axis shows the inclusion levels in ranges of 10, and the y-axis shows the proportion of exons from each subset falling within each range. For each exon, the EST inclusion level is defined as Ni/(Ni + Ns) × 100%, where Ni is the number of ESTs including the exon and Ns the number of ESTs skipping the exon. Only exons with Ni + Ns ≥ 10 were considered. On the left of the dashed line we plot the frequencies for exons with zero EST inclusion level. (b) Percentage of symmetric exons (length multiple of three) for each age group. (c) Percentage of symmetric exons by EST inclusion level category for each age group. Only alternative spliced exons with Ni + Ns ≥ 10 were considered.
