Figure 3

Type I error rates in the absence of true differential expression. The bar plots show the proportion of genes with P<0.01 for each method (a) when the library sizes are equal and (b) when the library sizes are unequal. The red line shows the nominal type I error rate of 0.01. Results are averaged over 100 simulations. Methods that control the type I error at or below the nominal level should lie below the red line.
