Figure 5

Clusters of genes induced by starvation frequently overlap clusters of genes that are likely regulated by the histone deacetylase Hda1p. Vertical blue lines indicate the position of genes induced by starvation (top and bottom gene maps for each chromosome) or that are enriched for histone H3 acetylated on K18 in hda1 Δ compared to wild type cells (middle gene map for each chromosome). Pink rectangles indicate clusters of genes detected by Pyxis in each dataset that are unlikely to have formed by chance (p ≤ 0.05). Roman numerals indicate chromosome number.
