Figure 2

Coefficient of variation (CV) of genes being expressed at levels between 50 and 6000. For each gene expressed at an average level of 50 or above, the CV was computed for the group of 8 tumors, for the group of 4 normals, and for the group of all 12 tumors and normals. As the lower limit of expression was increased, the number of genes represented in the CV decreased: there were 12,000 genes with expression levels of 50 or more, but only a few genes with expression levels of 6,500 or more.
