Significant consistency among different target genes in shifted time points and conversion efficiencies of the same regulator in different convergence modes. This figure shows only the top five regulators that are involved in the largest number of convergence modes. Note that one convergence mode includes more than one two- or three-regulator motif in this work. The overall percentage among all the convergence modes that the given regulator controls is indicated above the corresponding contiguous columns of shifted time points or conversion efficiency. The possibility to obtain this kind of contiguous concentrative distribution was examined by binomial distribution test. These statistics results are very significant (Additional data file 1).
