Figure 6. eQTL network of a yeast cross Hive plots of an eQTL network estimated from a yeast cross, involving only connected components with at least one eQTL association. For each chromosome, the hive plot shows three axes, where markers and genes are ordered from the center according to their genomic location. Vertical and left axes represent the chromosome in the corresponding panel, while the right axis represents the entire yeast genome alternating black and gray along consecutive chromosomes. Edges between genes axes correspond to gene-gene associations. Edges where at least one of their endpoints corresponds to a transcription factor or RNA-binding coding gene, are highlighted in orange and blue, respectively.
