Figure 8

MA plot of male vs female comparison with male- and female-specific genes highlighted. The MA plot was produced by the limma plotMA function, and is a scatterplot of log-fold-change versus average log-cpm for each gene. Genes on the male-specific region of the Y chromosome genes are highlighted blue and are consistently upregulated in males, while genes on the X chromosome reported to escape X inactivation are highlighted red and are generally down in males. log-cpm, log-counts per million.
