Skewness of expression correlation distributions of GRB targets and bystanders for THP1 macrophage differentiation time-course

Skewness Rep1

Skewness Rep2

Skewness Rep3


Correlation of bystander versus targets

-0.1962504

0.04708631

-0.06708631

Correlations of bystander with each other

-0.3967593

-0.1637775

-0.2637438


The skewness of correlation coefficient distributions for target-bystander gene pairs and for bystander pairs in the same GRB are shown. The skewness of distributions was calculated separately for each replicate. In all the cases, we observed more negative skew (left-skew) in bystander pair correlations.
