Figure 1. Differential expression levels of RNA binding proteins (RBPs) in senescent samples compared with growing ones. (A) Taking two consistently down-regulated RBPs as examples, their gene expression levels (y-axis: log2 read counts) of senescent samples compared with growing ones in fourteen experiments (x-axis). (B) Heatmap using a rank-based visualization method to present the differential expression levels of collected RBPs in all experiments respectively. Each column represents an experiment and each row represents one gene. A normalized rank transform is performed on each individual experiment by sorting the p-values from the most down-regulated with the lowest 0 (blue) to the most up-regulated with the highest 1 (red).
