Correcting constitutive exons selection bias in non-tissue-dependent exons. Exon scores for being alternative versus constitutive (x-axis) are plotted as a cumulative distribution function (CDF, y-axis). The initial set of selected non-tissue-dependent exons (blue) was biased towards constitutive exons compared to a random sample of 1,000 exon triplets from the genome (red). Subsampling the original set of 2,000 exons per tissue to fit the score distribution of a random set gave a good fit (green). Both green and red line plots are accumulated over all exons in all tissues as no significant difference was observed between the different tissues.
