Summary of observed contributions to gene expression noise. a The cell cycle causes fluctuations in the protein production rate, through deterministic and stochastic contributions. Other non-cell cycle-related sources contribute as well. The fluctuations in protein concentration are determined by protein production noise and dilution due to growth. b Contributions of the different noise sources, as described in panel a, as fractions of the total observed variance in gene expression (Additional file 2: Table S1)
