From: Some novel intron positions in conserved Drosophila genes are caused by intron sliding or tandem duplication

Figure 5

Relative locations of novel introns supported by NIPs. Reference for the determination of the intron position within the genes is D. melanogaster. The CDS were split into 10 bins of equal size. The numbers of TD introns (blue) and apomorphic ON introns (yellow) were counted. Compared to a uniform distribution both classes together show a 5' bias (p = 0.035; one-sided, binomial test).
