Gene variances for microarray datasets. Plots of the variance of the expression levels of each gene across mRNA samples. The variances are scaled by the maximum variance over all genes and the genes are ordered by variance in descending order. The vertical lines correspond to 50, 100, 200 and 500 genes, and the horizontal lines correspond to ratios of variances of 0.1, 0.2, 0.3, 0.4 and 0.5.
