Alternative splicing in some animal species. (a,b) The percentage of multi-exon genes that have alternative splice (AS) forms (a) and the mean number of alternative splicing events per gene (b) were calculated for ten studied proteomes (see the 'Alternative splicing' section in Materials and methods) and are shown as a function of biological complexity.
