Figure 3: Illustration of linking plots to examine mean-variance relationships and gene expression. The left plots (a, d) show the mean-variance (BCV vs log2 of count per million (CPM)). One point represents one gene. The yellow point indicates highlighting of a point by identi_cation using mouse action, which immediately displays this gene in the two other plots on the right. The middle column shows interaction plots of the raw data (b, e) and the right column shows the _tted value from the model (c, f). The two genes that are highlighted have similar overall mean abundance but di_erent dispersion, one low (top) and one high (bottom). In the interaction plots, the green color represents RPA and the orange color represents EV.
