Goodness-of-fit characteristics of the naïve model applied to the coral stress dataset, for the <i>Cq</i>1 = 37 setting for all genes.

<p>(a) Plot of lognormal residuals against predicted values to test for linearity. (b) Scale-location plot to test for homoscedasticity. A good fit is corroborated by the lack of pronounced mean trend in these two plots (red lines). (c) Plot of quantiles of standardized lognormal residuals against theoretical quantiles of the normal distribution. Red diagonal corresponds to the exact match. (d) Probabilities of experimental Poisson residuals plotted against their theoretical probabilities for one of the MCMC samples. All MCMC samples show the same nearly perfect fit to the Poisson expectations.</p>
