Figure 9

Distribution of median distances to ATG of all 7-mers, obtained when applying FastCompare to H. sapiens and M. musculus. For each 7-mer, a median distance to ATG was calculated using the positions of matches upstream of H. sapiens genes within the conserved set for this 7-mer. The 8,170 median distances were then binned into 20-bp bins, and the resulting histogram was smoothed using a normal kernel. The median distances for several known binding sites in H. sapiens are also indicated.
