  1. The results were obtained by fitting each model to T statistic values within promoter regions and gene bodies obtained from all six reference/reference comparisons. Entries in bold highligth the proposed model, which is shown here to produce the best AIC and BIC scores
  2. BE: beta distribution; GB1: generalized beta type 1 distribution; logitNO: logit normal distribution; logitTF: logit t-family distribution; logitSST: logit skewed Student’s t distribution
