Additional file 16: Figure S12. of Punctuated chromatin states regulate Plasmodium falciparum antigenic variation at the intron and 2 kb upstream regions

FAIRE-Seq signal distribution comparison between var introns and control introns. Control introns were extracted from the genes in P. falciparum with only one intron and based on the GC content distribution of var introns. a. The GC content distribution of var introns and control introns. b. Boxplot distribution shows var introns exhibit significantly higher FAIRE-Seq signal compared with control introns (‘****’ represents p-value < 2.2e-16; P-value was calculated based on Wilcoxon-Rank-Sum test).
