(A) We selected the ~15% most lowly expressed genes across six human tissues (RPKM of 0.5-2, n=2,199), and compared their expression levels (RPKM) in other species. Data from Brawand et al. (Nature 2011). (B) We compared expression levels (RPKM) of Alu-exon genes and their mammalian orthologues in primates and mouse. Species abbreviated as in Figure 1.
