Human Genome Variation and the Concept of Genotype Networks

Figure 3

Correlation between Genotype network properties on chromosome 22.

Each panel shows the pairwise distributions of two properties, one of each axis. For example, the two squares at the intersection of “Average Degree” and “Average Path Length” show the pairwise distribution of scores for these properties. The intensity of the blue shape is proportional to the density of points, while black dots represent outliers of the distribution, and facilitate the visualization of the limits of each distribution. Ideally, if there is a linear correlation between two properties, a linear plot should appear. The pairwise correlation coefficient is shown in all panels, in the right bottom corner. All correlations are significant (p value <0.05).
