Variance in tissues explained by gene regions and CGI regions. (a) The figure is showing the distributions of the R squared statistic, which describes the variance explained by different gene regions and intergenic area. It is clear that gene body and intergenic areas are more variable than gene promoter areas. (b) Distribution of R squared statistic describes the variance explained by CpG island shores, shelves, and non-island regions. Figure shows, that CpG islands are the least variable among these groups.
