Numbers represent P values from Mann Whitney U test comparing ESE density in conserved and non-conserved exons. We present the results of the two-tailed test and the two alternative one-tailed tests. P values in bold are significant after Bonferonni correction (P <0.05/18). We compare 3,413 conserved exons and 3,249 non-conserved ones. Conservation is defined by presence/absence in mouse.
